Defining Moments

Hearts on Their Sleeves:

Students, faculty, and staff stand with Dean Patricia Davidson during Wear Red for Women Day at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. The event raises awareness of heart disease in women and kicks off February’s annual American Heart Month. “Why?” the dean asked in her invitation to the photo shoot. “Because 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease or stroke. Because 1 in 3 American women dies of heart disease each year. Because fewer women than men survive their first heart attack.” Left unsaid: Members of the Johns Hopkins Nursing community can rock a red outfit.
