Become a WomenHeart Champion

WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease is currently looking for dynamic, driven women with heart disease to apply to become WomenHeart Champions. This is the nation’s only volunteer program that trains women with heart disease to run Support Networks for women heart patients

To apply, you must:

  • Be a woman living with heart disease
  • Be six months out from your initial heart disease diagnosis
  • Attend a local, day-long training in March 2018 (date TBD) at a participating hospital. Current participating hospitals include:
    • University of Florida Health Shands Hospital - Gainesville, FL
    • St. Peter's Hospital - Albany, NY
  • Attend the 2018 WomenHeart Science & Leadership Symposium at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN from October 5th - 8th, 2018. Travel, accommodations and meals will be covered. Please note that accommodations are double occupancy; requests for a single occupancy room comes at an additional cost.  

Trainees will learn critical heart disease information and will be trained to tell their personal heart stories, in order to educate and empower women to take charge of their heart health. Trainees will learn how to lead monthly peer-to-peer support groups, providing critical psycho-social and emotional support for women heart disease patients. Trainees will collaborate with their host hospital to launch the support network upon completion of the local training.
