Dr. Clara Massey, professor of internal medicine and director of the division of cardiology at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, was recently recognized as the 2013 Go Red for Women Honoree at the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women symposium.

The event, which was partially sponsored by the USA Health System, was held Feb. 1 at the Mobile Marriott.

Beth Anderson, hospital administrator at the USA Medical Center, introduced Dr. Massey at the event. Anderson said Dr. Massey was honored for her efforts not only in preventing heart disease, but also for her efforts in early detection and evidenced based treatment.

“Dr. Massey has been involved with the American Heart Association’s Go Red movement since her fellowship days, and she regularly speaks at community events to educate the public about prevention and treatment of heart disease,” Anderson said. “She balances her role as a physician with that of a wife, mother and community leader.”

Dr. Massey, along with Dr. Steve Cordina, assistant professor of neurology and medical director for the USA Stroke Center, presented lectures during a series of break-out sessions at the Go Red event.

As part of the "Go Red for Women" campaign against heart disease, the event educates and inspires women to take action against the number one killer of women in the United States.
