Her Heart Founder & Director
Dr. Linda Worrall-Carter is a recognised world leader in the field of women’s heart health. She has researched the area for 15 years, received over $10 million dollars in funding and authored more than 100 publications.
Linda identified that heart health research alone would not save women’s lives, reduce the economic and societal burden on the Australian healthcare system, nor drive changes in attitude and behaviour. Instead she recognised that a different approach was needed.
Her Heart was established to drive change through creating awareness of heart disease being Australia’s number one women’s health issue, and empowering women with knowledge so they can learn more about how to initiate change.
Together We Can Prevent
“The thing that is essential to know about heart disease is that it’s preventable. As a general rule, moderate activity is less harmful to heart health than inactivity. Prevention is possible and is proven to work and make a difference, so why not with heart disease in women?
Australia, let’s get behind this and be the first nation and global leaders in lowering the death toll of women from heart disease.”
