2021 Modesto and Stockton American Heart Month

The COVID-19 pandemic couldn’t stop American Heart Month! To protect the health and safety of our community, many of our activities went digital this year, but the message and meaning remained the same – losing even one woman to cardiovascular disease is too many.

Wear Red and Give Day Digital Celebration on Facebook

Throughout the day on Friday, February 5th, the Stockton-Modesto Division shared informative, inspiring, and fun videos on women’s cardiovascular health in a Facebook event page. Attendees were encouraged to wear red and share a healthy selfie on social media using the hashtag #GoRedModesto. Thank you to our Go Red for Women national sponsor CVS Health and local sponsor Sutter Health Heart & Vascular Institute for their support. Watch a recap of video on Facebook of how you went red!
