Go Red Launches Multicultural Scholarship Fund

During Hispanic Heritage Month, the American Heart Association’s Go Red Por Tu Corazón movement and its national sponsor, Macy’s, launches the Go Red™ Multicultural Scholarship Fund. The scholarship directly addresses important gaps in treatment that can lead to heart health disparities among Hispanic women.
