Heart Your Heart

According to the American Heart Association, every minute in the United States, someone's wife, mother, daughter or sister dies from heart disease, stroke or other form of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Do you heart your heart?

More than one in three women is living with CVD, including nearly half of all African-American women and 34 percent of white women. Although heart disease death rates among men have declined steadily over the last 25 years, rates among women have fallen significantly less. It's important for both men AND women to know the signs and symptoms associated with heart attacks, and to know how to take care of our hearts.
