Join Kelly to Support the HEART for Women Act
Heart disease is the number-one killer of women, but more than 90 percent of doctors don't know that more females than males die from it every year, according to the American Heart Association. This winter, Congress is expected to vote on the Heart Disease Education, Analysis and Research, and Treatment (HEART) for Women Act, which would authorize grants to educate doctors and nurses about such things as the effects of gender on drug effectiveness, provide gender-specific data to clinicians and researchers, and improve screening for low-income women at risk for heart disease and stroke.
