A Women and Heart Disease talk will take place from 6-7 p.m. in the Cardiac Rehabilitation, Phase 3 room at the Lake Business Center at 9200 Calumet Ave. in Munster.

"Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer," Community Healthcare System said in a news release. "This lecture is for women who would like to learn how to take control and lower the risk for heart disease. A Cardiac Rehab staff member will discuss the facts about heart disease, dispel some myths, review symptoms and provide the latest research."

The program is free but advance registration is required.
