Attention all HSC students, faculty, staff, and community, you are invited to the 5th Annual Women’s Cardiovascular and Brain Health (WCBH) Symposium, featuring the “RED OUT, SHOUT OUT” Showcase to support those affected by cardiovascular diseases.

This symposium will be held on Feb.1-2, 2024 @ the MET (room 109-111) building on UNTHSC campus.

This year the symposium is expected to be BIGGER and BETTER with participation and engagement from students, staff, faculty, and the community from UNTHSC and local Colleges and Universities in the DFW area.

The symposium will be two days in which there will be free breakfast and lunch, student oral and poster presentations for competition and prizes, expert guest speakers, renown keynote speakers, networking opportunities, community panel discussions, a health resources exhibition, a “RED OUT, SHOUT OUT” showcase, and much more…

The purpose of the conference is to 1) promote research addressing women’s cardiovascular and brain health, 2) provide the opportunity for students and postdoctoral fellows to present their work, 3) foster regional and local research collaborations, and 4) raise awareness about the importance of women’s health research.

We encourage all persons to register, submit an abstract, and/or volunteer to participate in our “RED OUT, SHOUT OUT” Showcase. The purpose of the showcase is to raise awareness for women and families who have been affected by cardiovascular diseases. In this event, participants will share their personal stories and testimonials on how cardiovascular diseases have impacted their lives and loved ones, while showcasing their red apparel and accessories! Thus, we are asking all persons that want to volunteer and share their testimonials on the impact of cardiovascular disease through personal expression (i.e., physical dress, poems, songs, spoken word, etc.) please register and sign-up on the link below.

This symposium will be an impactful and transformative event that you don’t want to miss!!!
