Scarlet Night –an affair of the heart is a signature Silicon Valley event, attended by over 600+ philanthropists, physicians, and business/community leaders. It serves as a stage for the Center to raise funds as it addresses the twin epidemics of heart disease and diabetes among South Asians (who have more than four times the risk of heart disease than the general population) by extending reach of awareness campaigns, enlarging scope of prevention services, expanding network of trained physicians, and enhancing risk prediction with research efforts. All donations fund the Center’s Outreach, Prevention, Education, and Research initiatives to reduce heart disease and diabetes in the community among South Asians.
