  • A focus on women’s heart health

    February is American Heart Month, and many don’t know that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women. Shown above, Lynda Terry of Yellow Springs, who suffered a heart attack in 2011, is shown at a “heart” tree on the bike path after she and her family completed a walk in support of the 1st Annual SCAD Research Walk/Run taking place that day. Terry’s heart attack was caused by SCAD, or spontaneous coronary artery dissection, a rare coronary disease that strikes younger women. (Submitted Photo)

    In 2011 villager Lynda Terry felt unusually tired. In the middle of the night, she woke up feeling nauseous, with a strange pain radiating down her arm. Though the symptoms weren’t the ones most would expect, Terry believed she was having a heart attack.
