InfoWorks Goes Red
On February 3, 2012, InfoWorks team members participated in National Wear Red Day in support of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign. To show support and to bring awareness to heart disease and women, employees wore red articles of clothing at InfoWorks’ corporate offices as well as on-site with clients.
Sue Herrman, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, was chosen as a member of the 2012 Circle of Red by the Nashville office of the American Heart Association. Herrman said of her involvement, “It is such an honor to be a part of the Circle of Red. Before getting involved, I had no idea how profoundly heart disease affects women. Anything that we can do to make people more aware and get the word out to women is a step in the right direction.”
To make InfoWorks team members more aware, the company sponsored an internal Wear Red Day and supplied healthy, red snacks including fresh fruits, berries and vegetables, whole grain tortilla chips and fresh salsa, as well as a few sweet treats such as dark chocolate dipped strawberries, rice krispy treats, and low-fat cupcakes. “Wow!,” exclaimed one employee, “Can we do this every Friday?”
InfoWorks also posted statistics about women and heart disease throughout its offices in an effort to bring awareness as well as provide an educational opportunity about this number one killer of women. Judy Ellzey, Vice President of Operations, commented, “InfoWorks is dedicated to education for our team members, including bringing more awareness to living a healthy lifestyle. We are proud to support the Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign.”
Educational information about women and heart disease as well as easy-to-use tools are available on the Go Red for Women website. Tell five women you know and love to check it out. You might just save someone’s life.
