Heart disease is the single most common cause of death in women. But you knew that—or did you? The expert team behind the Women’s Heart Initiative views knowledge as power. Which is why our goal is to keep you informed of risk factors and connect you to specialists, while advancing research to improve treatments and outcomes. Now that's powerful.
The Women’s Heart Initiative team is dedicated to empowering women to Learn, Act, and Live—educating women to recognize the warning signs of heart disease and encourage them to have open discussions with their physicians about their heart care. Together we strive for a future that includes earlier detection of heart disease in women and women-centric research to help improve treatments and quality of life.
According to the American Heart Association, one in every three women die each year of heart disease—yet only 44 percent of women are aware of this fact.
