The U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelminlgly to pass the HEART for Women Act. Now on to the Senate!! Four members of Wisconsin’s delegation to the U.S. House have co-sponsored the legislation, including: Tammy Baldwin, D-Madison; Ron Kind, D-LaCrosse; Steve Kagen, D-Appleton; and Gwen Moore, D-Milwaukee.
The Heart for Women Act takes a multi-pronged approach to improving prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease and stroke via: raise awareness among women and their health care providers of the prevalence of heart disease in women; provide gender and race-specific information for clinicians and researchers; and, improve screening for low-income women at risk for heart disease and stroke.
I traveled with a group of fellow Your The Cure Advocates to
Washington, D.C. to help our legislators understand the importance of
the HEART for Women Act, NIH and CDC funding and the FIT Kids Act. I invite you to get involved and join the Your The Cure Network. Our voices together can make a difference!
