Un reciente estudio indica que por lo menos el 71% de las mujeres hispanas tienen por lo menos un factor de riesgo asociado con enfermedades cardiacas.

Honored to make a difference by representing Illinois as a multicultural bilingual (Español/English) leader. There are now 650 WomenHeart Champions (reps in 49 states), 129+ Support Network Coordinators (SNC) (reps in 39 states) and 25% are women of color. The Class of 2014 had 40 of us on-boarding as National WomenHeart representatives. We attended the Mayo Clinic Science & Leadership Symposium in MN.
