Friday, Feb. 5, marked the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day as part of their “Go Red for Women” campaign.
In February 2020, approximately 60 members of the campus community created and photographed a red heart in support of women’s heart health. Three members of the MTSU community who have been impacted by heart conditions were honored.
This year, the campus was invited to celebrate in a virtual capacity, as True Blue once again went RED for women! A collage of this year’s participants are shown below.
While the campus community couldn’t gather in person because of COVID-19, MTSU Health Services asked campus community members to still show support for women’s heart health by doing three things …
1. On Friday, wear your red.
2. Take a picture wearing your red and tell us who you’re supporting.
All-day long, Health Services and Health Promotion shared posts of students, staff and faculty wearing red in support of the women in their lives affected by cardiovascular disease.
For those who didn’t want to submit a photo? They could still GO RED!
Get Your Numbers: Ask your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose.
