LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Administrators, staff, employees and even a few newborns at South Central Regional Medical Center are showing their support for a nationwide awareness campaign about heart disease in women.

Friday, they wore something red as part of National Wear Red Day for the American Heart Association.

It's all about supporting healthy lifestyles for women.

"We have a lot of great staff here, physicians, staff that take care of cardiovascular disease on a daily basis and we see what it does to families and the devastation it causes to families," said John Chioco, vice-president for professional services at South Central Regional Medical Center.

As part of the event, dozens of red balloons were placed in the hospital's cafeteria and the American Heart Association gave tiny red caps to new moms and dads so their babies could also participate.
