Heart Health Poster Contest Winners

Congratulations to Lydia Mollenkopf of Elizabeth City and Sydney Gardner of Jarvisburg, NC, for their winning entries in N.C. Cooperative Extension’s “Wear Red for Women’s Heart Health” Poster Contest. Their winning posters have been displayed in various locations around the county and each won a $50.00 prize, sponsored by Currituck Internal Medicine of Chesapeake Regional Medical Group.

These youth designed posters in support of the February 2nd, 2018  “Wear Red for Women’s Heart Health” campaign, that takes place each year as part of American Heart Health month. Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death for women in the United States and can mostly be prevented through proper diet, exercise and care by a trained physician. Wear Red  for Women’s Heart Health day helps to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease along with steps for prevention.

Lydia and Sydney’s winning posters can be viewed below and at the Currituck County Libraries, the YMCA, Currituck County Senior Centers and the Currituck County Extension Center.
