JACKSON, Tenn. — The newborns at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital delivered a special message Tuesday in honor of Heart Health Month. The babies wore red hats provided by the Volunteer Auxiliary. This is all part of the American Heart Association’s Go Red campaign to raise awareness for heart disease. “We all know the things to do to be heart healthy, but we don’t always do those — lifestyles, exercise, staying active, eating right, proper nutrition and of course knowing our numbers,” said Deena Kail, director of the West Tennessee Women’s Center. More women die from heart disease than men, so the babies are promoting healthy hearts for their moms.
