NANBPWC Ladies Wear Red to Support Healthy Hearts


Each year on the first Friday in February  the women of the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women's Club Inc. Toledo Club kick off "GO RED" Heart campaign in support of a healthy heart by wearing RED throughout the month of February.  


The Toledo Club of NANBPWC Inc. wants to bring awareness to the community about heart disease and stroke.  


The women would like to encourage everyone to: 

*Get checkups for blood pressure and cholesterol. 

* Don't smoke

* Eat right, watch your weight and exercise 

* Know the risk factors and signs of a heart attack

* Teach your family and love ones about why it's so important to stay active 

* Developed a heart health plan


This disease claims millions of American women each year and also affects more men as well.


Sarah Burkes, NANBPWC, Inc. Toledo Club Health chairman, and the members thank the community for their support of the health programs and the help given by spreading the word on how important it is to take charge of our health.   


Frances C. Collins, PhD, Toledo Club president, says that it is important to know your numbers: blood pressure, blood sugar, BMI (Body Mass Index) and cholesterol.
