Abstract

The Women's Heart Foundation (WHF) is a charitable organization dedicated to improving the survival and quality of life for women with heart disease. The goals of WHF are to (1) provide for the education of women as consumers concerning heart disease as it affects them economically, culturally, physiologically, psychologically and spiritually; (2) provide for the education of health professionals concerning the unique needs of women with heart disease; (3) advocate for research into the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and outcome of heart disease as it affects women, particularly minority women; and (4) support women as caregivers. WHF responds to the health crisis of women's heart disease by designing and implementing various wellness programs such as the Women's Heart Week. This outreach effort raises awareness about heart disease in women and promotes prevention, education, symptoms awareness, and early intervention.
