Heart Smart

"I'm particularly impressed with the fresh, unique ideas and solutions, professionalism and compassion for the community the Interns demonstrate. Our program continues to grow and provide increasing services due to the cooperation of our two teams."

BTG Heart Smart Event

Philadelphia's Annual Heart Smart event takes place at Thomas Jefferson University, midway through the program. The function is designed to raise awareness and understanding of cardiovascular health, while celebrating community involvement in BTG. Students, faculty, community preceptors and some clients from participating community organizations attend.

In the weeks preceding the event, BTG students work with community partners (except at sites where the activity is not appropriate) developing colorful posters that illustrate a heart smart theme. On event day, all the posters created by the community organizations are displayed and attendees vote on their favorites. The three winners of the 2019 Heart Smart Poster Contest are Salvation Army, Red Shield Family Residence; Southwest Community Development Corporation, Patterson School; and Vetri Community Partnership. Each winning organization is offered a $100 prize.

"I think it's very important as future health professionals to be aware of our surroundings and environment so that we can better understand our patients, and that's the reason why I believe BTG will help all of the interns become better health professionals in the future."
