 A Woman’s Guide to Her Heart Health 

If you’re like many women, you’re busy taking care of everyone else but yourself. Consider this: taking better care of yourself allows you to take better care of others. Your health is one of the most precious possessions you have, and without it, all the balls you juggle will fall to the ground. So what is your heart telling you these days?

While most women are aware of their breast cancer risk, many don’t realize a larger threat is beating inside their chests — heart disease. Heart disease is the number one killer of American women. In fact, more women than men die of heart disease each year.

So when you’re making your To-Do List for the week, add these tasks:

  1. Learn more about your risk for heart disease by requesting a “Her Heart” kit. Click here to get one or call 1-866-SSM-DOCS to request a free copy.
  2. Make an appointment with your doctor for a check-up and to discuss your heart disease risks and preventive strategies.
  3. Watch our television ads.
