A Message from Wendy Givoglu, Interim President, East and Winter Park Campuses

On Friday, February 7, 2020, the East Campus Student Services team wore red in support of the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign, a national movement to end heart disease and stroke in women. It is about making a commitment to stand together and take charge of one’s own heart health, as well as the health of family members.

According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease claims the lives of one in three women — that’s about one woman every 80 seconds. To reduce heart disease risk, the American Heart Association recommends abiding by “Life’s Simple 7” recommendations:

  1. Get Active
  2. Eat Better
  3. Control Cholesterol
  4. Lose Weight
  5. Manage Blood Pressure
  6. Reduce Blood Sugar
  7. Stop Smoking
