Despite prevention efforts and advances in treatments, heart disease remains the number one cause of death for women in the United States. Because heart disease becomes more common as you age, CRF recognizes the importance of educating the public about ways to keep their heart healthy at all stages of life through risk factor management and medical treatment.
