2014 AHA Heart Walk
Representatives of THRCE participated in the 2014 Heart Walk sponsored by the American Heart Association on Saturday, November 15th at LaSalle Park near Zephyr Stadium. The Heart Walk is an annual event to raise money for the American Heart Association. Along with the non-competitive walk, the event include numerous fun-filled health and wellness activities, free food and entertainment.
Nina Majid was the Team Captain for Tulane School of Medicine (TSOM) for third year in a row and acted as the team leader for the Department of Physiology. She was responsible in coordinating and recruiting team leaders throughout the medical school. Other TSOM-departmental team leaders were Lee Hamm (Dean of TSOM), Cooper Woods (Physiology), Prasad Katakam (Pharmacology), Gayle Evans (Medicine), Jennifer Huber (Endocrinology & Biometabolism), Michelle Frederick (Endocrinology & Biometabolism), Ashleigh Wolf (OB/GYN), Brad Weisberg (Tulane BIRCWH), Laura Wright (Matas Library), Tripp Frasch (Structural & Cellular Biology), Natasha Snipes (Ophthalmology), and Yaa Asare (Tulane University, Public Health). The team leaders were responsible for recruiting members who helped them raise funds and participated as walkers at the Heart walk. Raffles and bake sales were some of the fund-raising activities organized by the teams; Ms. Denise Lovrovich, Associate Director, of the Tulane Sponsored Projects Administration won the raffled Autographed Orleans Saints Football. TSOM team leaders, along with their members, helped raise over $4,365.39 for the AHA fundraising campaign. Overall, the AHA Heart Walk, with the fundraising support from Tulane and other companies in New Orleans, raised over $730,000; this fund will be used in accomplishing the AHA mission of building healthier lives free from cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
The picture above shows some of the walkers from the various TSOM teams who had participated at the 2014 Heart Walk.
