Many women gathered on Friday, February 26 at the South Central Human Resource Agency for the Lincoln County Health System “Go Red for Women” Luncheon. The luncheon was a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. Judy Merritt, Lincoln Medical Center Registered Dietician, demonstrated how to prepare a meal in a heart friendly way with an interactive cooking program. She also shared many “heart healthy” smoothie ideas and made green smoothie with samples for the guests to try. “The new leadership team at Lincoln County Health System is working on many initiatives to improve engagement and health education in the community. An interactive program where people can become involved in the presentation and encourage one another to try new concepts helps to motivate individuals to make healthier decisions in their daily lives,” stated Brie King, Lincoln County Health System Director of Marketing and Business Development. The luncheon raised a total of $600 for the American Heart Association.
