Our mission is to inspire and enable women and their loved ones to take action that prevents heart attack, stroke, and premature death.
COVID-19 Statement: Based on recent reports, elderly people with coronary heart disease or high blood pressure may be more likely to be infected by the virus and have more severe symptoms. Stroke survivors may also face increased risk for complications. Please practice protocols as directed by the CDC and physicians to prevent the spread of the disease.
During this time, all of our on-site education and screening programs have been canceled however we are still available online and by telephone. Our team is continuing our work on developing new programs like our Saving the Saviors First Responder Program and are here if you have questions or need access to resources. Stay well!

The first step toward better heart health is to know YOUR risk factors. A simple, basic screening typically checks your blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol, BMI/waist circumference as well as your family and medical history to predict your risk of heart attack or stroke.
If you are over 40 years of age, take the next step by talking to your doctor about a Coronary Artery Calcium Scan. This quick, painless screening can detect heart disease at its earliest stages and is saving lives!
Every year, around 400,000 women die from this largely preventable disease however the good news is that 80% of heart disease can be prevented or managed. That means this is a fight we can win. This is a fight we must win but we need women, like you, to join our cause!
