It was a sea of red at the City Hall Rotunda yesterday, but it wasn’t just because it was Valentine’s Day, it was the Black History Month Celebrates Health Go Red For Women event!
There were vendors specializing in weight loss, the effects of smoking, Dress For Success, food provided by Bridgeport Cafe, strawberry smoothie from VitaMix and more! Reporter Leah Haslage even got her BMI checked out-and she placed healthy in the Fitness category!
Director of Public Health Karen Butler spoke about how important keeping your heart healthy is, and was joined by Councilwomen Phyllis Cleveland and Maime Mitchell who also spoke out about the importance of having a healthy lifestyle and the Go Red Campaign.
