Governor's Mansion going red for heart health month
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana's first lady, Supriya Jindal, says the Governor's Mansion is going red as part of Heart Health Month.
In recognition, the Mansion will be lit red through Sunday to highlight the impact of cardiovascular disease on all citizens. It's the seventh straight year the Mansion has been lit.
Jindal says 40,000 infants are born in the United States with a congenital heart defect each year. And, she says cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, responsible for 17.3 million per year.
Jindal says those kinds of statistics highlight the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
