Women in Red Kick Off Campaign

by Ramonica R. Jones

Woodland Heights Medical Center kicked off its annual Women in Red Campaign Tuesday. The hospital started spreading the heart healthy message a year ago because many women don't realize they may be at risk for a heart attack.

Hospital department directors and board members had a photo shoot, and collected money from co-workers dressed in red, all for a good cause.

Marketing director, Yana Ogletree, said, "We're taking photos for the Women in Red [advertising]campaign, which also benefits the American Heart Association. We'll have a luncheon [in April]. The money raised off that luncheon goes to the American Heart Association as well. It's just calling attention to women and heart disease."

Heart disease is now the number one killer of both men and women.
