Yesterday, several members of our live phone answering crew attended the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Luncheon at the Oregon Convention Center. For those not familiar with the Go Red for Women campaign, it is a national movement to promote heart-healthy education and heart disease prevention. Ruby® Receptionists founder/CEO Jill Nelson, Director of Client Services Ashley Hampton, and virtual receptionist Sara-Lee B., and other supporters of the cause donned red dresses in order to raise awareness of heart disease, the leading cause of death for women in the United States.
Ruby® Receptionists was an official sponsor of the highly attended gathering with proceeds going to supporting awareness, research, education, and community programs to fight heart disease. Here are a few pictures from the worthwhile event:
One of the highlights of the event was keynote speaker Graham Kerr, also known as the Galloping Gourmet. A chef famous for his sumptuous cooking, he and his wife made lifestyle changes after her heart disease scare. You can learn more and find some of his now heart-healthy, but still delicious recipes on his website. We’re sharing what we learned with the rest of our virtual receptionist team. If you’d like to learn more about heart disease prevention for yourself or your team or if you’d like to make a donation, please visit the American Heart Association’s website.
