There will also be smoking cessation education there and experts will be on hand to answer your questions about heart disease and how to treat it.

If you want some exercise Saturday, the American Council of the Blind is teaming up with the South Plains Council of the Blind to bring us the first annual Walk Across Texas this weekend.
