Sister to Sister: The Women's Heart Health Foundation


The Sister to Sister Foundation (STS) is dedicated to women's heart disease prevention and education. Since 1999, their mission is to increase awareness among women that heart disease is their number-one killer; prevent heart disease through on-line and in-person cardiac screenings and behavior change; and educate women that healthy lifestyle changes can reduce heart disease risk dramatically.

Sister to Sister provides cardiovascular screenings and counseling sessions to women of all ages, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds. Their programs include Smart for the Heart, a free heart risk online assessment and action tool, collaborations with leading medical institutions worldwide and nonprofit partners, international health education materials, and awareness campaigns to spread the word that heart disease is a woman's #1 health threat.

These activities are intended to help women and their families understand that they have the power to reduce their risk for heart disease by making healthy lifestyle choices and provide them with the screenings, education and online resources to make that first step.
