Pickens County Heart Walk

November 1, 2017

The annual Pickens County Heart Walk took place in Gordo, Alabama, on Saturday, Oct. 28. The walk was organized by members of the Pickens County community and sponsored by the American Heart Association. The walk started and ended at Gordo City Hall and despite the cold and rain, attendance was good. As part of the partnership between the College of Community Health Sciences and the American Heart Association, the Pickens County Partnership had a presence at the Pickens County Heart Walk. The Pickens County Partnership offered handouts containing general information about the partnership as well as information about the Pickens County Medical Center Cardiac Rehab Clinic. After the walk, the College offered participants apple cinnamon chips, a seasonal and heart healthy snack. The College hosts the Brussels Sprouts Challenge each year at the West Alabama Heart Walk in Tuscaloosa.
