Hi and thank you for joining us at EmpowHer, the home of Women’s Health Online.

Have you heard about WomenHeart? http://www.womenheart.org/

WomenHeart was founded by three women who had heart attacks while in their 40s. In addition to being faced with many obstacles, including misdiagnoses and social isolation, they were each amazed how little information about or services for women with heart disease were available and how the issue seemed invisible within the women's health community. But in March 1999 everything changed.

WomenHeart is the nation’s only education and advocacy organization solely dedicated to promoting women’s heart health.

That’s why EmpowHer is joined by Lisa M. Tate, chief executive officer of WomenHeart: The National Coalition of Women with Heart Disease

1) What makes WomenHeart a unique organization? Is it true that heart disease is the number one killer of women?

2) Tell me about the HEART for Women Act (bill to be introduced on 2/12).
