Alpha Phi Foundation donation

Advancing women's heart health

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Heart to Heart Grant, Alpha Phi Foundation announced two recipients for the 2013 award. Selected from 20 applicants, Texas Heart Institute received $50,000 to continue advancing women’s heart health both in our local communities and in the broader medical field. Accepting the generous donation were (from far right) Dr. James T. Willerson, president of Texas Heart Institute, and Dr. Stephanie Coulter, director, Center for Women's Heart & Vascular Health at Texas Heart Institute.

Alpha Phi Foundation logoThe Center for Women’s Heart & Vascular Health is dedicated to research, outreach and education within the Houston community. The Heart to Heart Grant will help to fund an ongoing study, Houston Heart Reach for Women, designed to investigate the roles biology, psychology and lifestyle play in putting a woman at risk for heart disease. This study will identify those most at risk and deliver an intervention. It also will help medical professionals better understand the impact of ethnicity, lifestyle and emotional well-being on heart health.

“The funding of these vital initiatives is a cornerstone of Alpha Phi Foundation’s more than 56-year commitment to improving women’s heart health, and it ensures meaningful efforts will continue to lessen the risk of heart disease in women,” said Ann Carstensen, executive director of Alpha Phi Foundation.

Founded in 1956, Alpha Phi Foundation is an international nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance women’s lives through the power of philanthropy. The Foundation is the philanthropic and educational partner of Alpha Phi International Fraternity.
