Have a Heart to Heart conversation with your doctor about heart disease by asking how you can change your modifiable risk factors such as:

  • Physical inactivity
  • High blood pressure
  • Too much "bad" cholesterol (LDL), Too little "good" cholesterol (HDL)
  • Obesity

Have a Heart to Heart conversation with the women you love - your mother, sister, daughter, or friend. Tell them that heart disease is the number one killer of women and they should schedule a yearly check-up. Remind them to work out, eat right, and stop smoking to ensure they live healthier, longer lives.
