By Alice Chin

Woman’s Day held their 9th annual Red Dress Awards at Lincoln Center Jazz Center’s Allen Room. The event was hosted by Hoda Kotb of NBC’s Today and S. Epatha Merkerson.  Guests dressed in red dresses were treated to heart healthy foods and delicious desserts.  There were special performances by Javier Colon, winner of The Voice, an unbelievable performance by acapella group Naturally 7, DJ Mia Moretti and violinist Caitlin Moe, and closed with the phenomenal Grammy-winning group Sugarland.

Honorees that received awards included Regina M. Benjamin MD, MBA, the United States Surgeon General, Mehmet Oz, MD, Star Jones, and Martha Gulati MD, MS, FACC, FAHA.  They spoke of the importance for women, who are usually the caretakers of others, to also take care of themselves and their hearts.
