Special Events

Throughout the year, Penn State Heart and Vascular Institute offers a variety of free, community programs about heart and vascular disease

Heart disease continues to be the number one killer of men and women in the United States and more women die of heart disease than of all forms of cancer combined. Penn State Heart and Vascular Institute is proud to partner with the American Heart Association as the Capital Region's Go Red Cause sponsor to continue to work together and increase the awareness of this disease and educate women in the region on what they can do to reduce their own risk factors.
