4. Submit a Selfie to Support National Wear Red Day

UTHSC typically recognizes National Wear Red Day each year with the campus wearing red for a group photo to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease in women. Although we are still not able to gather in a group for a photo this year, we want to participate in this year’s National Wear Red Day, Friday, February 5.

All faculty, staff, and students can help support National Wear Red Day:

  • Take a selfie wearing red – a shirt, jacket, scarf, earrings, boa, glasses, hat, and/or anything else red!
  • Email your “red selfie” to communications@uthsc.edu by Wednesday, February 3
  • Share the 2021 campus photo – a “red selfie” grid – from UTHSC’s social media channels on Friday, February 5

The three most creative selfies will be awarded a Starbucks gift card courtesy of the Office of Equity and Diversity! So pull out your red, snap those selfies, and send them our way!
