Are you, or do you know, a woman living with heart disease who is interested in making a real difference to women’s heart health as a WomenHeart community educator?
Are you also at least six months past your last hospitalization for cardiac treatment, have your doctor’s written permission to travel, are very comfortable speaking in public, and want to start a WomenHeart Support Network in your home community?
If so, consider applying to attend a life-altering training event called the WomenHeart Science & Leadership Symposium at the world-famous Mayo Clinic, October 7-10 in Rochester, Minnesota.
The Symposium is the flagship training event for WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease in partnership with Mayo Clinic. This year, Symposium participants will gather at Mayo for expert training in establishing and leading patient support groups for women with heart disease in their local communities.
This year’s goal for the Symposium is to have two women from a community attend the training, and return home to co-coordinate a new WomenHeart Support Network. The Symposium curriculum addresses the latest science of women’s heart disease and training about the necessary steps and tools for establishing and maintaining a WomenHeart Support Network.

Watch Dr. Sharonne Hayes, Lisa Tate and Carol Allred share their thoughts about this unique cardiology training event for women.

Are you a “Mayo grad”, too? What advice would you offer to other women applying to attend this year?
