Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
The PULS Cardiac Test in partnership with Women Network and MEMAH, will host the sold-out Unmask Heart Disease 2015 OSCAR® Masquerade Ball on Sunday, February 22, 2015 in celebration of the 87th annual OSCARS® and American Heart Month. The special, VIP event will officially launch the new PULS Cardiac Test and will benefit nonprofits GUARDaHEART, Worthy Women Foundation and China California Heart Watch.
Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) remains the #1 cause of death and disability in the U.S., yet it is 80% preventable. Many individuals who appear “healthy” by current CHD detection methods, such as cholesterol testing, often go on to have a Heart Attack. In fact, 50% of Heart Attack victims have normal cholesterol.
In an effort to raise awareness and ultimately reduce the CHD Burden, the Unmask Heart Disease Ball will bring together celebrities, dignitaries and politicians for a formal “unmasking” of the leading cause of Heart Disease. Leading physicians will also discuss how the PULS Cardiac Test can be used as a powerful tool for the early-detection and prevention of CHD.
“The PULS Test detects traces of unstable cardiac lesions, implicated in 75% of recorded heart attacks,” commented Dr. Farzan Rajput, expert cardiologist at South Coast Cardiology. “It's a valuable tool for modern physicians concerned about their patients' cardiac health.”
Lisa Hart, Host of TV Series Discover Orange County airing on Cox3 and PBS SoCal Plus, will host red-carpet interviews with the VIP guest list upon arrival. LA Talk/Veterans Day Live Radio Show and Beverly Hills Magazine will provide media coverage during the event, which promises delectable cuisine, lively libations, and dazzling entertainment.
Collaborators for the Unmask Heart Disease 2015 OSCAR® Masquerade Ball include Bon Affair (featured on ABC’s Shark Tank), FMN Capital, Orange County Produce, Tanaka Farms, Cookie Connection, OC Celebrity Smiles, BR Integrated Marketing, Tony Lattimore Photography, Aha Image Studios, Pixster Photo Booths, Fresh Ends, MK Collab, IPPA-MAX, and UnderCover Menswear.
