Woman's Day Presents the Sixth Annual 'Red Dress Awards' Honoring Women Making Strides in the Fight Against Heart Disease

This bipartisan bill will give grants to teach health care professionals about preventing and treating cardiovascular diseases in women, provide gender and race-specific information for researchers, and expand WISEWOMEN, a program sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control that offers heart-disease screening for low-income and uninsured women.

  • Patrice Desvigne-Nickens, MD.
