Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women and 42 million American women are living with or at risk for heart

disease. More women than men have died from heart disease every year since 1984.

And women heart patients can become community leaders on this vital health issue by applying for WomenHeart's fall 2014 Science & Leadership Symposium to become a WomenHeart Champion volunteer today!

If you are a woman living with heart disease and want to help other women by becoming a WomenHeart Champion volunteer community educator, apply today for the prestigious 2014 WomenHeart Science & Leadership Symposium at Mayo Clinic! Apply here:

Or, if you are a woman heart disease survivor interested in establishing and leading a patient support group for women with heart disease at your local hospital through WomenHeart's National Hospital Alliance, learn more and apply at

The Science & Leadership Symposium is taking place October 10-13, 2014, at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Applications are currently being accepted through September 5th. Symposium fees, meals, and hotel accommodations are covered.

Each year since 2002, 60 women heart disease survivors have graduated from the Science & Leadership Symposium and returned to their community to offer peer-to-peer support and education to women living with and at risk for heart disease. WomenHeart Champions, who are 660 strong across the country, also act as spokespersons for WomenHeart to raise public awareness about women's heart disease.

Apply today to become a WomenHeart Champion or a Support Network Coordinator through a National Hospital Alliance member hospital!
