MHRI Goes Red for Heart Health

For the sixth year running, the MHRI Wellness Committee invited associates to wear red in support of the American Heart Association’s (AHA) fight against heart disease in February. From February 2 until February 14, associates gathered together to show their commitment to heart health.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At MedStar Health Research Institute, many of our research efforts are designed to improve quality of life for heart patients. Cardiovascular research provides patients with the opportunity to contribute to the advancement of knowledge and treatment for heart and vascular disease. Clinical research trials also may provide access to new drugs and interventions.

Thank you to all who showed their support for this important cause! Check out all the photos that were submitted by MHRI associate teams. Thank you to all who took the time to participate. Winners will be announced in an upcoming edition of Important Things to Know for all MHRI associates.
