Heart Disease

Heart Disease is the leading cause of death among women. While nearly half of all Americans- 49 percent- have at least one of three key risk factors for heart disease, 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease or stroke. Women In Government is pleased to offer a Full Toolkit and QuickKit for legislators on this important issue. We hope you utilize the fact sheet, sample resolution, and social media examples in newsletters, on your website or through action in the statehouse.
