Known for their big hearts, Texans are being asked to show it by honoring frontline workers for their efforts in the daily fight against COVID-19.

CHI St. Joseph Health is asking Aggieland residents and beyond to draw or paint hearts on a surface or by make “heart hands” with their hands and arms. These gestures are aimed at doctors, nurses, police, rescue workers, healthcare teams, EMS, firefighters and others who are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic every day.

Heart-makers can display their work by uploading their photos on, or sharing it on social media using the hashtag #ShowUsYourTexasHeart.

People from across the Brazos Valley are encouraged to participate in a variety of ways, either by sidewalk art with chalk or crayons, drawings, heart hands or any way they choose. There also are coloring book pages for kids to color their own heart pictures.

Anyone interested can learn more about COVID-19 on the Information Hub, which is updated regularly with helpful resources about staying healthy during this time.  Participants can also send a customizable card to a healthcare professional.

In 2018, the Texas A&M University Health Science Center and CHI St. Joseph formed a partnership to establish a co-branded primary care network aimed at improving access to health care for the Brazos Valley community while also training future clinicians. The agreement made CHI St. Joseph Health the primary clinical partner for Texas A&M in the Bryan-College Station market.

The CHI St. Joseph and Texas A&M Health Network includes 16 primary care locations, including pediatrics, housing 47 providers within a nine-county service area, offering access to expert specialists and ancillary services. The partnership has elevated the quality and delivery of health care for the community by partnering clinicians and faculty at the Texas A&M Health Science Center with physicians and clinicians at CHI St. Joseph Health.
