Delaware State University represented strongly at the 2012 Southern Delaware Go Red for Women Luncheon and Fashion Show on Feb. 3 at the Sheraton Inn in Dover.
See the below photo and slide show, as well as more information below it concerning DSU’s involvement in the event.
Dr. Robin Williams, the DSU president's wife, gave the keynote address, in which she urged the 400-plus (mostly women) in attendance to live healthy lifestyles and to pay attention to the signs and symptoms of heart disease and not delay in seeking medical attention when needed.
Brenda Farmer, DSU director of Ceremonies and Events, took part in the event's fashion show. She wore a beautiful red gown that was designed by LaVar Johnson, a DSU senior textile and apparel major. Mr. Johnson also served as Ms. Farmer’s escort during the fashion show. Eunice Gwanmesia, a DSU nursing faculty member, and her daughter also modeled outfits during the fashion show.
The DSU Department of Nursing served as an army of health practitioners, providing various types of screenings during the event. The fundraising event is designed to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke for women and to raise funds to support further research and education to benefit Southern Delaware women.
