"Go Red for Women" Luncheon (Feb. 23, 2018)

Delta Dental of New Mexico (DDNM) was honored to be a guest of the American Heart Association (AHA) at the "Go Red for Women" Luncheon on February 23, 2018, in Albuquerque. Go Red for Women is a national movement by the AHA to inspire women to be informed about heart disease and stroke and to take steps to fight back.
 
DDNM staff showed their support by attending the local luncheon, where they learned about the Go Red movement and listened to speakers such as Michelle Duvall, director of The Mindful Center. The event raised money for Albuquerque Family Advocacy Center, which is instrumental in protecting victims of abuse in the Albuquerque area.
 
"Thanks to the American Heart Association for the invitation to this great event that supports one of Albuquerque's most vital resources, the Family Advocacy Center," said John Martinez, Director of Communications and Public Affairs at DDNM.

With that he announced his pleasure with the public-private partnership with Delta Dental to help address these oral-health issues through education.

The event was held at the New Mexico National Guard Museum in Santa Fe and was attended by legislators, government officials and many supporters of the State of New Mexico National Guard.
