Michigan in Motion is M3 Group’s internet radio show hosted by Media Director Jennifer Hodges and Sales Director Peter Ruffing.
Our first guest is the Communications Director for American Heart Association in West Michigan, Cindy Bouma. During the show we will discuss with Cindy what Go Red for Women is and why it’s so important to raise awareness of heart disease in women. One interesting statistic – heart disease is the number one killer in women causing one in three deaths each year. We will discuss what you can do to prevent this from happening to you.
Our second guest is Sharon Buursma, President of Visiting Nurses Foundation in West Michigan, long-time volunteer with AHA and a heart attack survivor. Sharon will share her story of how she beat this deadly disease and why this motivates her to dedicate her time to AHA to help them raise awareness.
