Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among women. Women over age 40 are less likely than men to survive a year after their first heart attack. Why? Because women often put their family's health first and their health last.
Meriter Women's HeartCare is here to help you take care of yourself. We provide a comprehensive cardiovascular program designed especially for women by women. After determining your risk for heart disease, we work with you to develop a plan that's right for you – a plan you can live with, with goals you want to achieve. We’ll support you as you incorporate small, realistic changes into your daily life.
Becoming a Member of the Women's HeartCare Team
When you join the Women’s HeartCare “team,” you’re joining a caring group of women who are just like you, often experiencing the same changes and challenges. You’ll make the journey to improved health together. We’ve found that group sessions bring out the best in women, creating an environment of sharing, support, encouragement and companionship – it’s like having your own personal cheerleaders.
