Heart Smart Centre Goes Red
Heart Smart Centre Goes Red” was the theme for Montego Bay-based cardiologist Dr Claudine Lewis’s latest initiative to highlight and promote heart health in women. The initiative included two events on Friday, February 3, a heart health screening exclusively for women and a Wear Red cocktail event.
“We decided to stage Heart Smart Centre Goes Red to raise awareness about heart disease in women. As a woman cardiologist, and someone with heart disease risk factors, it is particularly important to me and our team to highlight how heart disease behaves differently in women. Our awareness campaign introduces our Red Dress ambassadors, who have been engaging women to get screened by sharing their heart health stories. We have also dedicated our team to screening female members of our community for heart disease and heart disease risk factors,” Lewis explained.
The Wear Red cocktail event saw the entrance to Heart Smart Centre, located on G West Centre in Montego Bay, transformed by event dÃ©cor outfit Tai Flora Services. The relaxed ambiance saw guests from the medical, political and business sectors; leisurely imbibing sips of vino from Select Brands and CPJ, paired with tasty bites from Stush in the Bush and Rainforest Caribbean. Guests were also treated to entertainment from singer Alexandria Love and the Good Vibes Ongle Band.
