WomenHeart @ Work 

Promote Heart Health @ Work

We invite you to give your employees the gift of heart health education!

  A healthy workplace is a productive workplace. Providing your employees with health and wellness programs can have a positive impact on your company's bottom line. Heart disease has a tremendous impact on business. It costs the United States $108.9 billion each year in health care services, medications, and lost productivity. More than a quarter of Americans (27%) are living with heart disease, and 30% of adults have high blood pressure.

WomenHeart @ Work
WomenHeart@Work (W@W)
is WomenHeart’s workplace-based heart health outreach initiative to raise heart health awareness where so many Americans put their hearts every day—the workplace. W@W bridges the gap between individual health and workplace productivity, providing employees with a basic understanding of heart health!


The Impact of Heart Disease
A WomenHeart@Work presentation offers important information for employees — both women and men — and covers key things they should know in order to take charge of their heart health at work and home. Employees attending a W@W event will walk away knowing how to take charge of their heart health at work and home. Employees will learn about: Red Bag of Courage

  • signs and symptoms of a heart disease
  • key risks factors associated with heart disease
  • necessary lifestyle changes to reduce risk    

Attendees also receive a WomenHeart Red Bag of Courage®, a gift sized tote containing heart health educational materials. A WomenHeart@Work engagement consists of a presentation and/or information booth at an employee wellness fair led by a local WomenHeart Champion, a woman heart disease survivor trained as a women’s heart health educator and advocate. WomenHeart Champions are the “boots on the ground” in the fight against heart disease, and each is equipped with a powerful personal story to share with your employee audience.


A survey of W@W audiences found the following:

  • 91% reported that the information presented was new for them.
  • 96% reported that the presentation improved their knowledge of heart disease risk factors and how to detect a heart attack.
  • 100% stated that they will take steps to improve their heart health, such as eating better, exercising more, and developing ways to manage stress.
