"I am happy to volunteer with American Heart Association and support the fight against heart disease through advocacy and education on healthy living. Vestido Rojo is an important community event because it provides women education, access and support on heart disease prevention and it empowers to help other women through the Madrina program."
I have been part of the American Heart Hispanic Outreach Task force and planning and coordination of the Dallas Vestido Rojo event for the past 8 years.
I am a bilingual Community Benefits Consultant advocating for clients by providing the appropriate education and support to coordinate healthcare providers and healthcare services to meet the needs of themselves or their loved ones.
I conduct presentations on benefits issues and awareness programs in the following areas: medicare, medicaid, life and health insurance, home care options, health education, community services, human service needs and benefits.
I strongly believe in the outreach American Heart Association does through the Vestido Rojo Event. Many hispanic women become educated in the topic of heart disease where they become impacted and make changes in their lives.
