Red Couch stop at UAB nets 250 participants, 21 stories

Records were falling as The Red Couch spent an eventful two hours at UAB Hospital’s North Pavilion today.

More than 250 people showed up for UAB’s Heart Month celebration, which featured free blood pressure and weight screenings, a backpack giveaway and, of course, the American Heart Association’s famed Red Couch. 

Twenty-one people shared stories or messages of support on camera while sitting on The Red Couch, a new record for most stories at a single event. Those videos will be uploaded to our special YouTube playlist over the coming days.

The Red Couch is back on the road tomorrow for a stop at the Samford University Cafeteria. The AHA will be setting up and filming stories between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Keep it here at for more info!
