Events That Will Keep You Young at Heart

At Club Red, we go all out to celebrate American Heart Month each February with a series of events that will get you and about with the Club Red community. This year, our goal is to spread the word about heart age and why it’s important to be young at heart.

“Heart Month is our opportunity to educate others about the prevalence of heart disease in women, and knowing your heart age is the first step in lowering your risk,” says UVA cardiologist and Club Red Clinical Ambassador Brandy Patterson, MD.

So join us for one (or more!) of the events below to learn more about how you can turn back the clock by living a heart-healthy lifestyle. We promise fun is part of the program!
