Celebrate Black History Month with WomenHeart as we launch our 3rd annual social media campaign for African American women!

Inspire and raise awareness through WomenHeart’s #29DaysofHeart campaign. In recognition of Black History Month and Heart Month, this campaign celebrates the rich history of African Americans, while raising awareness of the number one killer of women – heart disease. 


We're launching on January 31st to kick start the #29DaysOfHeart campaign,
because 28 days just isn’t enough!

Each day, January 31 through February 28, we will celebrate the accomplishments of an African American woman or trailblazer by sharing a photo image, short biography and heart health information on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of famous African American advocates and trailblazers past and present.
