Wisewoman 

Well-Ahead Louisiana's new WISEWOMAN program helps women reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke. Eligible WISEWOMAN participants will receive free health screenings at qualifying health centers throughout the state. Participants who are found to have high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol will receive a care plan that includes clinical care and access to programs that help her eat healthy, move more, or quit smoking, all at no cost!

     

Become an Ambassador

A woman you know and love may be affected by cardiovascular disease.  It is the No. 1 killer of women, but only 17% of women consider it to be the greatest health problem in the United States.  It’s time to start spreading heart disease and stroke awareness in Louisiana’s local communities.  As a leader in your community, you have the power to shape the future, and we need your help!  When you become an EmPOWERED to Serve Ambassador through the American Heart Association, you will have the special opportunity to connect eligible women in your community to Well-Ahead's WISEWOMEN program.  This means you can connect the women who need it most to health screenings and healthy behavior support services like WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers), Taking Off Pounds Sensibly, or a National Diabetes Prevention Program, at no cost. 

Why Become an ambassador?

  • Focusing on the fight against heart disease and stroke is one of the best ways you can use your power to make a difference in your community. 

  • Help women in your community understand and reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke. Because your voice is heard, you can educate. Because your influence is felt, you can change behaviors. 

  • Because it's no longer just about wearing red or sharing heart health facts. It's about taking charge of your own health, the health of those you can't live without, and encouraging others to do the same.
