VHVI rolls out new video to support Heart Walk

Keeping the beat has new meaning for Vanderbilt cardiologist Mark Glazer, M.D., who, along with colleagues from the Vanderbilt Heart & Vascular Institute, has once again produced a music video to promote the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 1.

The video, which can be viewed on the Vanderbilt Heart Sounds page at, was filmed at the Vanderbilt University Hospital Cardiac Catheterization Lab and United Methodist Communications/Kingswood Productions Studio in Nashville.

It was directed and produced by Casey Culver and features Glazer and colleagues singing “We're Gonna Walk Around" to the melody of the 1966 Johnny River’s hit, “Poor Side of Town.”

“I’ve always enjoyed singing and thought the video would be a fun way to promote Heart Walk to a wide audience,” Glazer said.

“The Heart Walk is an extremely important fundraiser for Vanderbilt’s research efforts as we continue to study ways to improve the heart health of Tennesseans, who have one of the highest rates of heart disease in the country.”

The Heart Walk will take place Saturday, Oct. 1, at 8 a.m. on Vanderbilt’s campus. VUMC's goal is $350,000 toward Nashville's target of $1.4 million.
