Hello Link Sisters,

As you know February is National Heart Health month so it’s time to get started. Link Michelle Bailey is planning an amazing RED DRESS EXTRAGANZA February 7-9, bringing you information on heart health, oral health ,and mental health. An illness in one area can manifest symptoms in another therefore total body health is key.

To that end…” WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR YOU LATELY”? Have you started walking? Are you counting your steps? Keep your eyes on the prize ( in this case your health). Send your step count to Link Yolanda on a monthly basis-

LET’S GO !!!
