Go Red for Women!
There was a lot of red clothing at a mountain hospital today.
Medwest Haywood in Clyde invited the community to appear in a "Go Red for Women" video.
It's part of National Wear Red Day created by the American Heart Association and National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
It's all designed to raise awareness of heart disease in women, which claims half a million American women each year.
Two survivors talked about the importance of the campaign.
Helen Ann Kroll, heart disease survivor, "since 2003, 34 percent fewer women are dying of heart disease and many more lives have been saved just getting the word out."
Lisa Gaines, heart attack survivor, "the message is you've got to pay attention to your body."
Participants learned about risk factors, and healthy ways to eat and exercise.
