On March 28, 2019, The American Heart Association hosted its annual Rock the Red Fashion Show featuring student designers from Jefferson University at the Franklin Institute. Judges chose three of two dozen beautifully designed and originally crafted red dresses to be displayed in Macy’s Center City this spring. The bold designs aim to bring awareness to heart disease, the number 1 killer of women in the U.S. The American Heart Association also celebrated the impactful work of local researchers who have recently received grants from the organization. Active research grants in Philadelphia currently total over $12 Million.
