Mississippi Baptist teams ended February with full hearts. In recognition of American Heart Month, red fun happened all month long and in many ways.
- The metro Jackson American Heart Association wrapped up the month with a presentation.
- As part of the Little Hats, Big Hearts initiative for congenital heart defects, 10 tiny locally knit red hats for babies were donated to Mississippi Baptist on Friday, Feb. 16.
- Baptist team members celebrated Wear Red on Friday, Feb. 23.
- On Feb. 24, Mississippi Baptist hosted the 20th Annual Heart Day, a low-cost heart screening to help people identify heart disease risks. Participants who did not have a doctor were directed to a Baptist Medical Group physician. Valued at $450, the screening package included a heart risk assessment, blood pressure, height and weight with body mass index (BMI) calculation, EKG, total cholesterol and glucose.
