“Research on women’s heart health is 35 years behind. We can improve care and close the gap through the Women’s Cardiovascular Science Center.”
Women’s Cardiovascular Science Center
Gala proceeds benefit the MHIF Women’s Cardiovascular Science Center to advance care and improve outcomes in women’s heart health.
When it comes to heart disease, women are understudied, underdiagnosed and undertreated. Now it’s time to understand and #ResearchHer.
Heart disease takes the lives of more women than all cancers combined, Alzheimer’s and respiratory diseases combined.
Women’s heart health research is 35 years behind that of men’s heart health research.
Your support will help advance women’s cardiovascular research, which will change the trajectory of this disease in women. Much more work is needed to identify risk and save women’s lives.
