red dress heart health women corpus christi

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Over 350 Latinas of the Coastal Bend gathered at the Ortiz International Center on Saturday, March 26, 2022 for the annual “Vestido Rojo” Vuelve a Tu Ritmo program.

The event ran from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm and aimed to raise awareness of a very important topic: heart health.

The American Heart Association is known for supporting the Go Red for Women and Go Red por tu Corazón movements and sponsors the event each year.

Women shared stories about how heart disease has affected themselves and their family members, and how it shapes their perspective on heart health.

A demonstration, which was more of an entertaining activity, was also held to teach hand signals that can express cold sweats, arm pain, back pain, and other symptoms of heart problems. All movements together, with a little rhythm, turned into a dance that can help women better remember the signs.

It was a great day to celebrate health and happiness while empowering everyone with knowledge that could one day save their lives.
