WomenHeart of Central Ohio Support for women living with heart disease.

WomenHeart is The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease. It is the only patient support organization for women living with heart disease.

WomenHeart Support Networks are critical outlets for heart disease survivors to understand their heart disease more fully, discuss how the disease has changed them and their families, and empower them to act as partners with their physicians in all healthcare decisions. 

Additionally, WomenHeart Support Networks provide critical mentoring and peer to peer emotional support, encourage secondary prevention, and help women living with heart disease set realistic goals for behavior and lifestyle changes.
