Melanie Lawson testing out a new program at Baptist that's all about lifestyle change.


Baptist Health's HeartWise for Women is a comprehensive prevention program addressing the unique cardiovascular needs of women at every stage of life.

This leading-edge program designed by women who are experts in women's cardiovascular care, HeartWise connects women across North Florida to the medical services, information and resources needed to maintain a heart-healthy lifestyle.

The three components of the program:

  1. Know your numbers
  2. Eat heart-healthy 
  3. Get moving again

Morning Show anchor Melanie Lawson and executive producer Stacey Readout have taken the challenge and invite you to follow along as they go through this life-changing journey. 

Each Tuesday in the 8 a.m. hour of The Morning Show, Lawson will provide viewers a glimpse of what they're learning and how they're growing with the program.  Most every day, one or both will update the blog (below) with their challenges and victories.

"Wish us luck," Lawson says as she begins the journey.
