HeartCaring is a nationwide outreach program with a focus on a gender-specific approach to cardiovascular disease. It is supported with education from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. The American Vascular Association is also a primary partner in the project. HeartCaring uses a three-prong approach that includes hospitals, clinicians and patients. This program is geared toward hospital employees and physician practices, especially family physicians and OB-GYNs, who then work to educate women ages 25 and over on risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Women should look for the Heartcaring logo to know their provider has been trained.
