Meet Bridget Hale
Bridget Hale has been named corporate development director for the Lubbock American Heart Association (AHA). Hale, a Lubbock native and graduate of Texas Tech University, has already begun working on engaging the community in the initiatives of the AHA. The first Lubbock event will be the Lubbock Heart Walk on Oct. 16, 2021.
Hale will handle all aspects of all events, including logistics, sponsor volunteer recruitment and guest experience. She’s also responsible for building awareness for the AHA’s 2024 goal, which is to be champions for health equity by advancing cardiovascular health for all, including identifying and removing barriers to health care access and quality.
She will be calling on philanthropic leaders with a shared interest in heart/stroke prevention, corporate businesses and health care institutions and local residents whose lives have been affected by heart attack and/or stroke.
