Volunteer to screen women for heart disease


The Emory Women’s Heart Center‘s “10,000 Women” project is in need of clinical and non-clinical volunteers for upcoming heart screenings.

The 10,000 Women project, an initiative of the Emory Women’s Heart Center, provides free cardiovascular risk screening events throughout our community at local churches, community centers, or events. With the increased incidence of hypertension in African-American women, our initiative is focused on reaching this population.
