Let’s get heart-smart

Introducing WomenHeart

We’re devoting this February (a.k.a. Heart Awareness Month) to getting the Silpada sisterhood heart-smart, with help from the incredible people at WomenHeart.

HEART-SMART TIPS

  • Healthy mind, healthy heart (It’s all connected! Healthy diet and regular exercise will help both)
  • Know your risk factors and family history.
  • Know your numbers (Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Blood Sugar.)
  • Speak with your doctor – here is a list of questions to get you started. 
  • Learn the lingo – WomenHeart’s Glossary
  • Learn more on WomenHeart.org.

Why Heart-Health?

Short answer? We care about you! Did you know Heart disease is the #1 killer of women? The Silpada sisterhood is about empowering one another to be our best selves and of course our love of jewelry! We are at our best when we come together to act as a network of support.

Why WomenHeart?

WomenHeart the National Coalition for women with heart disease, was a perfect match for Silpada‘s heart-month initiative for two reasons:

  • Their expertise
  • Our shared desire to create a supportive community of/for women

With more than 48 million women living with or at risk of heart disease, there is an increased need for WomenHeart to ensure communities have the support, education and advocacy services they need.

Now, in its 20th year, WomenHeart has successfully:

  • Developed the Champions Leadership Program – a national volunteer program that trains dedicated WomenHeart patients to be equipped to meet the needs of their heart sisters and women at risk at the local, state and national levels.
  • Trained more than 900 heart-disease-survivors as community educators via the WomenHeart Science & Leadership Symposium in collaboration with Mayo Clinic.
  • Created the Red Bag of Courage® program, placing educational information about women and heart disease directly into the hands of hundreds of thousands of women living with or at-risk for heart disease.
