Congress is working on legislation that could help us live longer

Population experts say life expectancy in the United States has decreased in recent years, and America has fallen behind other developed nations. On Oct. 5, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) introduced a bill that would require the federal government to develop a “National Strategy to Increase Life Expectancy.” WomenHeart supports this bill, which, among other things, calls for analysis of differences in life expectancy by sex. This will be important to understanding how we can improve women’s heart health. You can read more on the bill in this Newsweek article.
