Heart Disease in Women

The mission of the Women’s Health Initiative is to focus on the critical health issues facing women today. Heart disease was selected as the first initiative because it is the leading cause of death among women in the United States.

These articles are extremely informative and provide Philoptochos members with the knowledge they need to be more educated and aware health care consumers.
