ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

February is "go red" for woman's heart health month. This week, the Dougherty County Health Department will host a heart healthy food event.

Dougherty County Extension Agent Susan Williams will show you how to cook healthy food.   

"Just for people to come out and get the knowledge so they can be empowered and how they can prepare better meals not just for themselves but for their families. Because its not just for the woman, We need to change our mindset with how we feed our children. The types of food that we give them and the way its prepared as well," says Program Director Sue Ewings.

The event is open to the public at the county health department starting at 10 a.m. Friday, February 7th.
