Walkers take campaign to heart
Members of the UT Southwestern community gathered with people from across the region on Sept. 11 for the annual HeartWalk. More than 400 medical center students, staff, physicians, researchers and their families signed up for the event, and many of the participants raised pledged amounts for ongoing research. HeartWalk participants were particularly enthused that the number of participants from the UT Southwestern community grew by about one-third from the previous year. The American Heart Association, sponsor of the HeartWalk, has awarded UT Southwestern $11,181,216 for 54 research projects this year.
