The third stop of the Red Couch Tour is almost here! On Tuesday, April 24, at the Southern Saratoga Y, you can join host Leigh Hornbeck of the Times Union on the red couch presented by the American Heart Association and Ellis Medicine, and share your story of how heart disease and stroke has affected you.
The Heart Association and Ellis invite survivors, caregivers, and anyone affected by heart disease or stroke to join us at “The Red Couch Tour” and share their story. Leigh will ask about your experience and what you want others to know.
Heart disease is our nation’s No. 1 killer, and stroke is No. 5. Come take a seat on our red couch to share, or be in the audience to be inspired and educated.
Here’s info about Stop No. 3! Hope to see you there!
Thursday, April 24
11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Southern Saratoga YMCA
1 Wall St., Clifton Park
Moderator: Leigh Hornbeck, reporter, Times Union and Women@Work

Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
