The art exhibit aims to raise awareness on heart disease as a prevalent concern among Filipinos, and build support for the issuance of trans fat (TFA) elimination policies in the country. TFA is a toxic compound commonly found in food items with partially hydrogenated oil (PHO), such as prepackaged and baked and fried street and restaurant food. Poor diet high in TFA increases the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) like heart attacks, known comorbidity of COVID-19.

The Heart to Art exhibit represents a fervent call to strengthen efforts in combating the risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. It is hoped that through this exhibit, one’s eyes are opened to the urgent need to enact policies that will prioritize Filipinos’ heart health.
