Dr. Vanessa Britto, of Wellesley College, appeared on WCVB-TV’s CityLine on Sunday, Feb. 14, to discuss heart health tips and risks for women of color.
Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
