Plan to join WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease for a special presentation about the Million Hearts campaign.
Million Hearts – a joint initiative of the Centers for Disease Control and the Centers for Medicare Services to prevent 1 million deaths from heart disease and stroke over the next five years — is the most ambitious public health effort of this century. Don’t miss this informative presentation. Learn about the opportunities to be involved!
Lisa Tate, CEO of WomenHeart, invites you to hear Janet Wright, MD, Executive Director of Million Hearts and her staff brief attendees about the campaign and the exciting activities to date. Ways to improve the health and productivity of women through empowerment and a focus on the ABCS (aspirin, blood pressure, cholesterol and smoking cessation) will be presented. Dr. Wright is particularly interested in discussing how organizations would like to be involved in this landmark initiative!
