Austin People’s Community Clinic
As a member of the Health Communications Committee, I am continuously impressed and actively involved in PCC’s initiatives to educate and serve at-risk communities in Austin.
As the go-to health clinic for our most vulnerable citizens, People’s Community Clinic is singularly positioned to make a huge impact on thousands of lives. The clinic is a unique and tested model for medical care, a true safety net for Central Texas’ uninsured and medically underserved. People’s Community Clinic offers a greater variety of health and wellness services than any other not-for-profit clinic in Austin, with services ranging from prenatal through eldercare.
American Heart Association | Go Red For Women Campaign
I threw my support and my red dress behind this important awareness campaign in 2016, in hopes of spreading the facts and dispelling some myths regarding women and heart disease.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. That’s approximately one woman every minute! In 2004, Cardiovascular disease claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year, yet women were not paying attention. In fact, many even dismissed it as an older man’s disease. To dispel the myths and raise awareness of heart disease & stroke as the number one killer of women, the American Heart Association created Go Red For Women, a passionate, emotional, social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.
