Our latest video, titled “Getting A Beat On What Women Know About Heart Health” was developed to help spread the word about women and heart health. Given heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, we sought to find out what women know about this topic. This educational video is part of our new KNOWH the Difference initiative, which focuses on sharing important knowledge and news on women’s health (KNOWH). Help us raise awareness about women and heart disease by sharing the video with your network and communities. Watch the full video here: www.fda.gov/womenshearthealth
