VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Miss Georgia, Carly Mathis, is helping South Georgia Medical Center to celebrate National Women's Health Week.
 
Mathis toured the hospital's newly opened Dasher Memorial Heart Center and patient tower Thursday afternoon. During her reign as Miss Georgia, Mathis has been an advocate for the American Heart Association and has been promoting heart health through Project SAVE.
 
"I'm excited to tour this because it's new and there's been a lot of money that's been brought in to make sure that it's just a great facility to come to," Mathis said prior to the start of the tour through the Dasher Memorial Heart Center.
 
Mathis is also the guest speaker for Thursday night's Women's Health Week Dinner at the Drury Inn in Valdosta, which is being put on by SGMC.
