UNDERSTANDING HER HEART

Bayer

Our Purpose

In today’s world, evidence-based education and partnerships are key to equipping women to manage their heart disease and heart disease risk. Through Understanding Her Heart, WomenHeart Champions will reach women in their communities to provide educational resources and connect them with a local network of partners to support their health journey as they navigate living in ever-changing environmental and climate systems. 

Raising Awareness

Improving access to important information about heart disease in women and the factors that might affect a woman’s risk, including climate and pollution.

Establishing Partnerships

Strengthening ties in the community is essential to reaching women who would benefit most from heart health education.

Convening Stakeholders

Bringing together community leaders to address the importance of women’s heart health and the effects of climate and pollution to help create local change.
