Heart disease kills more than 20,000 Latinas each year

The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease today launched its inaugural Hispanic Heritage Month campaign, made possible by Burlington Stores. With nearly 48 million women living with or at risk for heart disease—almost 1 in 3 Hispanic women—the campaign will raise heart health awareness among Latinas and will run from Sept. 15 - Oct. 15.

“As a woman heart disease patient, I fully know the importance of receiving the type of support and services that WomenHeart offers to women living with or at risk of heart disease” said WomenHeart Champion and Board Chair Evan McCabe. “Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women and it kills more than 20,000 Hispanic women annually, which is why we are very excited to kick-off this awareness campaign.” READ MORE AT BUSINESS WIRE
