Several Family Medical Center of Michigan (FMC) staff members participated in an American Heart Association fundraising campaign in southeast Michigan during February. In exchange for a $1 donation, staff members could wear jeans on three extra days if they also wore the color red. The fundraiser was part of the Go Red for Women campaign, which highlights the impact of heart disease on women. In total, the Health Center staff raised $75.

“We feel this is a greatopportunity to mention… heart health to our patients in the waiting room before they even see their provider,” said Family Medical Center Program Coordinator Terrie Ball.
