MORRISTOWN, N.J. Bayer HealthCare on Monday supported WomenHeart, an advocacy organization solely dedicated to promoting women's heart health, with a $100,000 educational grant from the Bayer USA Foundation.

"The Bayer USA Foundation and Bayer Consumer Care are pleased to support WomenHeart and the organization's mission to improve the health and quality of the lives of women living with or at risk of heart disease," stated Bayer Aspirin brand director Rob Schumm. "Its activities align with Bayer's own cardiovascular public health objectives of increasing the awareness of prevention and early detection, accurate diagnosis and proper treatment of heart disease."

Through the grant, WomenHeart plans to develop an array of educational materials for all women — especially those living with heart disease — such as "Passport to a Healthy Heart" and "Living Well with Heart Disease" pamphlets. In addition, the grant will fund educational programs such as online seminars and support chat rooms.

"WomenHeart is thrilled to have Bayer's support," commented Lisa Tate, CEO of WomenHeart. "The Bayer brand is synonymous with quality and customer care and we are proud to partner with Bayer in our continuing effort to provide information that can help women live longer heart healthier lives."
