WomenHeart Science & Leadership Symposium at Mayo Clinic

A Special Training for Women with Heart Disease

October 9-12, 2015, Rochester, MN

Make a Difference for Women Living With Heart Disease

Are you a woman living with heart disease? Would you like to help other women with heart disease find the support they need to take charge of their heart health? If so, please apply for the WomenHeart Science & Leadership Symposium!

WomenHeart is now accepting applications for the 2015 Science & Leadership Symposium at Mayo Clinic. The Symposium is the only national training program for women with heart disease who want to lead a patient support group in their community.


 

About the Symposium

This four-day WomenHeart training program brings together dedicated women heart patients to train them as WomenHeart Support Network Coordianators -- volunteers who provide support and education to other women living with heart disease.  After training, participants will lead 8 - 10 support network meetings annually in their communities, and participate in other WomenHeart education and advocacy activities. 

Note: training, meals, and hotel accommodations are provided at no cost to attendees. Attendees are responsible for their transportation costs to and from the conference at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.

You Can Make a Difference for a Woman Living with Heart Disease

A recent survey of patients who attended WomenHeart Support Network meetings found that

  • 93% of women support network participants felt they understood their heart disease better as a result of attending support network meetings.

  • 93% of respondents also felt their their quality of life had improved.
  •  85% felt better able to communicate with their doctors about their heart disease.

These are just some of the positive changes you can bring to women living with heart disease.
