Each February the American Heart Association shines a spotlight on the number one killer of women, heart disease.

Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined. Most women don't notice the symptoms until it’s too late, which is why heart disease has been called "the silent killer."

Darby Dennison, an American Heart Association volunteer and heart disease survivor, and Dr. Joseph Imsais, a cardiologist with St. David's North Austin Medical Center, spoke to KVUE about an upcoming event.

On Wednesday, Feb. 26 the Austin Go Red for Women Summit will be held at the AT&T Conference Center from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Go here for more information.
