Today, The Famous Red Couch will roll into IBERIABANK (2340 Woodcrest Place, 35209) from 2 p.m. until 3 p.m. Staff from the American Heart Association will be on-hand to interact with those interested in learning more about heart health.
The Red Couch campaign’s goal is to encourage those impacted by cardiovascular diseases to share their stories and help raise awareness of the nation’s No. 1 health threat. Staff and volunteers from the American Heart Association will be on-hand to film those who wish to share their stories on camera, and a special YouTube channel has been set up to host those stories. At each Red Couch appearance, information on how to prevent and treat cardiovascular diseases will be distributed.
