The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women initiative is designed to increase women’s heart health awareness by encouraging organizations to wear red together. By wearing red, we raise our collective voice to increase awareness on women’s cardiovascular health and come together toward a single goal: the eradication of heart disease and stroke. Tomorrow wear red, and take your best selfie. Then, send it to heart@utsouthwestern.edu, and stay tuned to UTSW social media channels where your picture might be featured.

See how we did, and share on social media.
