Heart attack and stroke are the number one health threat to women and research shows that only 56% of women in the U.S. recognize that heart disease is their number one killer. 

Saint Luke’s Muriel I. Kauffman Women's Heart Center was the first of its kind to solely focus on the care and treatment of women’s hearts and has paved the way for women’s heart care across the country.  It’s celebrating its 30th anniversary of advocating for and treating women’s heart. 

Dr. Tracy Stevens, medical director at Saint Luke’s Muriel I. Kauffman Women's Heart Center, shares how heart disease affects women uniquely and why more advocacy and research is needed on women's hearts.
