WHA in the News

WHA discusses heart, brain connections

Major depression. Alzheimer’s. Heart disease. These health risks are some of the major public health challenges of our time — and women are disproportionately affected.

On Wednesday, Feb. 28, from noon – 1 p.m. ET, Women’s Heart Alliance CEO British Robinson joins a panel of experts to discuss new discoveries in research focusing on women’s heart and brain health, and how they may transform our understanding of heart disease, Alzheimer’s and depression.

British will share how the WHA translates these cutting edge discoveries into programs and policies that affect women’s every day lives — from our Cities and Communities Heart Initiative in Nashville, to our college screenings and our national public awareness campaigns.

With heart disease, prevention is cure. We are empowering women to take control of their heart health, and #getHeartChecked.
