Representatives from the nutrition program will highlight healthy diet options; and students from the education programs will showcase their work in health education. Plus, grab a healthy bite, while supplies last!

Shop for unique and charming gifts just in time for Valentine's Day at local vendor booths. Find handmade crafts, beauty and accessories and art works, to name a few. Be sure to grab a ticket at the door for your chance to win a special door prize.

The highlight of the event will take place at 12 p.m. as the Red Dress Fashion Show takes place in the SEC Ballroom. See the future of fashion as red haute garments created by students of UIW's fashion department and seven San Antonio-area high schools will take the runway. Winning designs from students at the high school and university levels will receive special recognition.

The annual Red Dress Fashion Show & Health Fair supports the American Heart Association (AHA) and their Go Red campaign during National Heart Month in February. An AHA representative will also join us for the day's events. The event is free and open to the public.
