As we work toward that goal, we're working hard to change the perception that heart disease is a "man's disease." And it's working! By teaching more and more women how to talk to their doctors about heart disease, we can save thousands of lives every year. Because the good news is that heart disease is often preventable!
And in case anyone still believes that heart disease is only a concern for older women, we encourage you to read the Inspiring Stories we've collected. Together, they make the case plain and simple: the time for action is now!"
