If a woman stops you and asks "How is your heart health?", that's Theresa Volpe, Baltimore's spokeswoman and passionate ambassador for the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" campaign, which encourages women to learn about heart disease. Volpe suffered a heart attack a year ago, when she was 38, and speaks to thousands of women about the importance of taking charge of their health. She will be sharing her story at Baltimore's Heart Walk on Oct. 25 at Federal Hill Park. Volpe lives in Lutherville with her husband and two daughters.
