Share |
WomenHeart is the only national organization dedicated to promoting women’s heart health through advocacy, education and patient support. As the leading voice for the 42 million American women living with or at risk of heart disease, WomenHeart advocates for equal access to quality care and provides information and resources to help women take charge of their heart health.

Since our inception, WomenHeart—founded by three women heart attack survivors who transformed the isolation, confusion and ignorance about women’s heart disease into a rallying call to save women’s lives—has been at the forefront of providing free support services to women with heart disease and educating policymakers, health professionals and the public about the urgent need to make women’s heart health a priority.

Founded in 1999, WomenHeart’s mission is to improve the health and quality of life of women living with or at risk of heart disease. Through our programs and services, WomenHeart raises awareness about the importance of prevention and early detection, accurate diagnosis and proper treatment of women’s heart disease. 

WomenHeart is a coalition and a community of thousands of members nationwide, including women heart patients and their families, physicians, health advocates and consumers committed to helping women live longer, healthier lives.  At the center of the organization are the more than 600 WomenHeart Champions, all heart disease survivors, who have graduated from WomenHeart’s Science & Leadership Symposium at Mayo Clinic. These alumnae serve as WomenHeart Support Network Coordinators, community educators, media spokeswomen, and general support volunteers. Through leadership and advocacy training, information resources and an online community, WomenHeart empowers women living with heart disease to manage their own heart health and to help all women take charge of their heart health.
