Nora Navarro of Viola L. Sickles School and Judy Miller of Knollwood School encouraged school administrators and teachers to wear red in recognition of American Heart Month in February.

"Go Red for Women" is an awareness program that was begun by the American Heart Association in response to the fact that heart disease is the number one killer of women in America. 

For her part, Navarro provided a heart-healthy breakfast for Sickles School Principal Susan Alston and for the teaching staff. 

Navarro also demonstrated the use of her juicing machine using healthy and fresh ingredients such as kale, almonds, apples, ginger, and almonds. 

Sickles staff members were also provided with handouts including tips for maintaining heart health -- such as not smoking, getting exercise, and eating non-processed fresh foods -- plus a list of the signs and symptoms of a heart attack in women.

Doing her part for heart health, Miller collected donations for the American Heart Association from Knollwood staff members and also provided heart health handouts. Those making donations received red pins which they displayed throughout the day along with their colorful red attire.

"I am very happy to once again promote heart health and collect donations for the American Heart Association," said Miller. "I also want to thank my colleagues for always providing such terrific support for this important cause."
