Follow the Fifty: Models of Heart Health
Heart disease is the number one killer of women.
We launched a community counter-attack!
In February 2012, NDDH and its HealthQuest Northeast CT Coalition recieved a $100K grant to lead women on a journey of heart health. What happened next transformed an entire community! Visit our Follow the Fifty website to learn more!
Follow the Fifty: Models of Heart Health was sponsored by a grant from the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health as part of a public-private partnership with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to promote The Heart Truth®, a women’s heart health awareness and action campaign.
Funding for Follow the Fifty was provided by individuals and corporations including The Heart Truth partners Belk Department Stores, Diet Coke, and Swarovski. The Heart Truth®, its logo, and The Red Dress are registered trademarks of HHS.
