You've probably heard it by now... someone dies from cardiovascular disease almost every minute. It is the leading cause of death among women. Women over 40 are less likely than men to survive a year after their first heart attack.
Thanks to a nationwide educational effort, awareness of heart disease has increased, but action to lessen those risks has not. Why? Because women often take care of their family's health first and put themselves last.
