Access to affordable health insurance, heart disease research, ensuring women are included in medical research, and more are all made possible through laws and public policies. WomenHeart works to advance federal policies that support women living with and at risk of heart disease, and we train and encourage women to be advocates for themselves.

It’s important that you be empowered to make your voice heard, whether it be with your doctor, insurance provider, or elected official. We are here to provide the resources and tools you need to be most effective.
