Our Story

Welcome to the page of WomenHeart WomenHeart is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1999 by three heart attack survivors who transformed the isolation, confusion and ignorance they experienced about women’s heart disease into a mission to save women’s lives. The organization has grown into a coalition and community of more than 27,000 members nationwide, including heart patients and their families, physicians, health advocates, and consumers committed to helping women live longer, healthier lives. WomenHeart Champions are the heart of WomenHeart. These survivors attend the organization’s Leadership Symposium, held at the Mayo Clinic, to obtain leadership and advocacy training. They go on to volunteer as WomenHeart support group leaders, community educators, and media spokeswomen around the U.S. WomenHeart empowers women living with heart disease to manage their own heart health and to spread that message to others. The organization also educates policymakers, health professionals and the public about the urgent need to make women’s heart health a priority.
