Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women. In fact, 1 in 30 women die of breast cancer, but about 1 in every 3 women will die of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases; 1 every 80 seconds! Despite these staggering facts, only a small percentage of women consider heart disease a health threat. We have set out to change this perception and change these statistics.
Simply complete application and submit it by Jan. 24th deadline to:
American Heart Association BetterU Program
