·         I-25 to Martin Luther King Jr. Exit 224B

·         Turn West on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue (Stay in Left-hand lane)

·         Continue West bound for 3 blocks to Broadway Blvd. ** (Stay in Left-hand lane)

**Note** at this intersection one can see the Over-Hang “Albuquerque Convention Center Parking Garage” Sign

·         Pass through this intersection, staying in the Left-hand lane  (the road will split into the parking garage or to drive over the pass)

·         From the Left-hand lane veer left into the parking garage


 ***For those who need to be dropped off**

We have a green loading zone on southbound 2nd St in between Marquette and Tijeras that will work for drop off/pick up.  This can handle about 4 vehicles at a time so we ask that no one stay parked for longer than necessary to drop off.





Go Red was developed to bring attention and research dollars to a neglected area: women’s heart health. Heart disease … not cancer … is the No. 1 killer of women. Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined.

Symptoms of heart attack in women can be more subtle than in men. It may not be a sharp pain in the chest. Women sometimes have more of a feeling of fullness in the chest or pain in the arm, jaw or neck. Vomiting. Cold sweats.

While most of us have at least one risk factor for heart disease, the good news is that the vast majority of the risk factors are preventable through diet, exercise, not smoking, keeping blood pressure low, etc.
