 Secretary of State's Office Goes Red For Women

2/5/2010

 

    

    Charleston, W.Va. - The Secretary of State's Office went "Red For Women" today, taking part in a national effort to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke.
    The initiative is part of the American Heart Association's effort to change the perception that heart disease is a "man's disease," and according to the group's website the effort is paying off.
    The American Heart Association says about 450,000 women die every year of heart disease - that's about one every minute.
    The group also says that while 1 in 30 women die of breast cancer, 1 in 3 die of cardiovascular disease.
    Pictured in the above photo are (L-R) Rosemary Lockhart, Jenny Pierson, Linda Kincaid, Leah Powell, Jenny Twyman, Sheryl Webb, Joanne Chapouris, Delaney Wells, Nancy Harrison, Secretary of State Natalie Tennant, and Heather Harper.
