Join us for 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 is sponsored by HSC Division of Research and Innovation and the Office of the President.

The purpose of the symposium 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!!! Please see the important deadlines below.
