Woman's Day Presents the Sixth Annual 'Red Dress Awards' Honoring Women Making Strides in the Fight Against Heart Disease
Date:2/3/2009

dures for individuals who, due to limited means and no insurance, would be otherwise unable to receive lifesaving treatment.

"Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women and actually kills more women than men each year," said Jane Chesnutt, editor-in-chief of Woman's Day.

That's why she wrote the Heart for Women Act, which has passed in the House and will hopefully be enacted this year. 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. The Heart Truth, a campaign from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to educate women about preventing heart disease, wouldn't be the same without the tireless work of Dr. Desvigne-Nickens. As the leader of the NHLBI's Cardiovascular Medicine Scientific Research Group, she helped plan the NHLBI's national initiative, which has been crucial in raising heart disease awareness among women. A trusted advisor to many Heart Truth partners, such as WomenHeart and the American Heart Associati
