The American Heart Association's guidelines for preventing heart disease reinforce an important fact that all women should know: Preventing, diagnosing and treating heart disease is very different if you are a woman.
That's why we created our Heart Shaped Community, a program at Dignity Health Heart and Vascular Institute of Greater Sacramento that helps women incorporate activities and techniques in their daily lives to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This is the first step to becoming heart healthy.
By becoming a Heart Shaped Community Ambassador, you'll be invited to upcoming women's-focused events featuring presentations and demonstrations on nutrition, activity and stress management techniques. All of our activities are focused on heart disease prevention.
Don't do it alone! Invite your mothers, sisters and friends to be active participants in their heart health with you.
