Why I Go Red #PiedmontGoesRed #Spon

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." - Helen Keller

The heart is the animator of life and source of love. Scriptures throughout history teach that the heart was the seat of the soul and if directed by the mind, was the path to enlightenment. Today, much emphasis is placed on mental health, while preventative maintenance and care for the heart is often overlooked.


Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States and can be a silent killer. One out of three women die suddenly of coronary heart disease and almost two-thirds of these women have no previous symptoms. Even if you have no symptoms, you may still be at risk for heart disease. Let's join together to keep the heart in mind by raising awareness to reduce our chances of getting heart disease.
Piedmont Heart Institute is a proud sponsor of Atlanta #GoRed for Women Campaign. Piedmont Heart has created a comprehensive screening which is much more than a regular checkup. You will receive a detailed report along with expert recommendations on how to keep your heart healthy. And it’s just $100! 

The individualized risk analysis is done with a nurse practitioner, and includes a complete health history assessment, physical exam and screening, EKG test, lab work, and an extensive Heart Health Report.

I decided to schedule my heart screening, because I want to be around for my children. While heart disease does not run in my family, it was important for me to still get tested and learn about the risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high total cholesterol or high blood glucose. But how do you know which risk factors you have? The best way to find out is through screening tests during regular doctor visits.

To reduce your chances of getting heart disease it is crucial to keep the heart in mind.  This means not only choosing to live a heart centered life of courage, cooperation, and purpose, but being responsible for the emotional and physical health of you heart.  If our hearts are healthy and strong, we can continue to fully express the power of love on earth.

Here are some easy tips, provided by Piedmont Healthcarefor women at any stage of life to begin living a heart-healthy lifestyle.
Getting screened is easy and convenient with 6 screening locations across the metro Atlanta area. Join the conversation on social media and use the hashtags #PiedmoneGoesRed and #GoRedWearRed.

Today, I had the wonderful opportunity of being on the set for CentricTV and Upscale Magazine's television shoot honoring fascinating "16 Women to Watch in 2016." 

This new television show will highlight 16 Black women across the county, and will air in March during Women's History Month. I'm so thrilled to be one of the women selected and featured on this upcoming television show.

Experience the NEW Children's Museum of Atlanta!

The Children's Museum of Atlanta (CMA) went through major renovations and opened its doors again to the public this month! I took my kids and nephew (see photos below) to the newly renovated museum over the weekend to view the enhanced space and exhibits.

The museum features 2 additional permanent exhibits, a new 3,000 square foot mezzanine level, enhanced existing galleries, a permanent performance space for the Museum's Imaginators and much more!

Cool Fact! CMA is the only educational venue of its kind in Atlanta, with education programs and exhibits designed for young children ages 0-8. Learn more about CMA here.
