Gilmore Promotes Heart Health Awareness Through Lady In Red Fashion Show
AMORY, Miss., February 10, 2013 – February is National Heart Health Awareness Month, and Gilmore Memorial Regional Medical Center is encouraging women to become proactive about their health.
“As women, we often put the needs of our family before our own,” said Mary Franklin, Chief Nursing Officer. “Gilmore is encouraging women to take time for themselves so that they will have time in years to come to spend with those that they love.”
Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women. According to the American Heart Association, more women die of heart disease than of all forms of cancer combined. This means mothers, sisters and friends are dying at the rate of one per minute. To break the silence surrounding heart disease, Gilmore will be hosting the
Lady In Red Fashion Show and Heart Health Luncheon
Tuesday, February 25, 2013
River Birch Ballroom
The event will feature more than twenty local women modeling the latest spring fashions from retailers in Amory and Aberdeen. Following the fashion show, Gay Smith, will address the most common factors affecting women’s heart health along with warning signs every women should know. Smith is a southern belle and devoted mom, who will hold your heart and keep you in stitches.
A heart healthy luncheon will be served at no cost to attendees. Each participant will also receive a thank-you gift for their attendance. The event is scheduled for one hour.
Pre-registration is requested by February 21, by dialing 662-256-6002 or 662-256-6005. For more information about Gilmore’s services, visit www.gilmorehealth.com.
