Central New York women are being mindful of their health today and finding out about a condition that develops over time but often has dire consequences.
This condition, heart disease, is the number one killer of women. Thursday, the American Heart Association held their 11th Annual Syracuse “Go Red For Women” Luncheon & Expo, in an attempt to, once again, raise awareness for the disease.
A group of Syracuse pastors and ministers are partnering with the police department to open a dialogue about any questions concerning police conduct. They say they're hoping to avoid the disconnect that led to the deadly encounters with police in Ferguson, Missouri and New York City. Pastor Daren Jaime of People's AME Zion Church hopes monthly meetings at churches across the community will clear up and confusion about the law.
