Am I having a heart attack?

Research indicates that women often times do not recognize the signs of a heart attack and therefore are not sure when to call 9-1-1. If you think you are having a heart attack, call 9-1-1 now.

 


I have heart disease. . . Now what?

After being diagnosed with heart disease, many women experience feelings of isolation and depression. Talking with someone who’s been there can make a difference in emotional recovery. WomenHeart has a unique model utilizing a series of peer to peer programs specifically designed to educate and support you each step of your heart health journey.
