The American Heart Association is launching a new campaign to promote women's heart health across Minnesota: The Women's Heart Health Promotion Act! You know the facts: heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases are the number one killer of women in Minnesota. We can change this by investing in early detection and management of risk factors by increasing funding to the state program that provides screenings for low-income and uninsured women. The program currently screens about 1,800 women. We need to increase this to at least 15,000 to truly make an impact and save lives.

Support this campaign by joining "You're The Cure" at or contact Bethany Snyder at the American Heart Association at
