HEART FOR WOMEN BILL. Heart disease has traditionally been seen as a man's disease. Yet, more women than men die of heart disease. This is the leading cause of death in women. In celebration of National Heart Month, this program brings practical advice for women at risk. The program also includes comments on the Heart for Women Act, a bill introduced this week in Congress to expand heart screening to uninsured women.
Guests: Nora Silva, Senior Director of Cultural Health Initiatives, American Heart Association, San Antonio, TX, www.americanheart.org; Mildred Rodriguez, Heart attack survivor, Women's Heart Champion, Miami, FL. www.womenheart.org
