While nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented, cardiovascular diseases continue to be a woman’s greatest health threat, claiming the lives of 1 in 3 women. That’s a third of mothers, sisters and friends. It’s time to change this fact. It’s time to be demanding when it comes to women’s heart health and ask others to do the same.

Prevention is key and that means knowing the facts about heart disease in women.
