Organizations nationwide are creating diverse celebrations of women's heart health, such as Red Dress-themed health fairs, galas, dances, celebrity teas, power breakfasts, and fashion shows to benefit and promote their own women's heart health awareness programs. On a limited basis, The Heart Truth education program can provide a subset of the national Red Dress Collection to your city through the program's Single City Program.
