St. Elizabeth Heart and Vascular Center will present "The Beat Goes On," a community social to raise awareness about heart disease, Feb. 16 at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church Hall in Youngstown.

Featured speakers are Kristin McCaskey, a heart attack survivor, and Dr. Penny D’Souza, a board-certified cardiologist who has a special interest in women’s heart health.

McCaskey was 24 years old and pregnant with twins when she suffered a massive heart attack on Christmas Day 2009. Until then, she had no idea that she could be at risk. That day changed her life forever.

In addition to the speakers, "The Beat Goes On" will also feature informational displays, a buffet dinner, wine, live music and a fashion show – women’s fashions by Talbot’s, men’s fashions by Jos A Bank Clothiers.

This is the first year for "The Beat Goes On," which is expected to become an annual event, according to Patti Kostelnak, chairwoman of the organizing committee.
