The Heart Truth is a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The campaign warns women about heart disease and provides tools to help them take action against its risk factors. Its message is paired with an arresting visual -- the Red Dress -- that serves as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness.
The Heart Truth's Online Toolkit contains information, ideas, and materials needed to promote health disease awareness. Specific materials are available for health professionals, faith-based organizations, and Spanish-speaking communities.
