In gearing up for February's Heart Disease Awareness month, a friendly competition between departments at Baptist Health Systems inspired employees to use their creativity to "dress up" the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women logo.
The dresses were on display for judging on Thursday, January 30, 2014. The overall winner was the Baptist Health Foundation (who partnered with Baptist's Adopt-A-School Brown Elementary. 1st Alternate Winner was Baptist's Human Resources and the Honorable Mention Award went to Outpatient Cardiovascular Unit. Baptist employees voted on the "Baptist Choice" Award which went to Baptist Medical Clinic Family Medicine Dogwood.
In 2003, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the American Heart Association and other organizations, committed to women’s health, joined together to raise awareness of women and heart disease.
The NHLBI introduced the red dress as a national symbol for women and heart disease awareness, and Baptist adopted this symbol to create synergy among all organizations committed to fighting this cause.
