Learn the truth about women and heart disease!
  • 1 in 3 women suffer from heart disease, but only 1 in 5 believes she is personally at risk, thinking heart disease couldn't happen to "someone like me."  But it does.
  • Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of one woman every minute.
  • 80% of cardiac events in women may be prevented if women make the right choices for their hearts, involving diet, exercise and abstinence from smoking.
