Sister to Sister Diplomatic Breakfast at Neiman Marcus
Heart Disease: Not Just a Risk for Men

Sister to Sister: Everyone Has a Heart Foundation, Inc. held a breakfast at Neiman Marcus on January 27 for female diplomats and diplomats’ wives to launch an International Heart Health Awareness Campaign to raise awareness that heart disease is a leading killer of women globally. Guests were counseled about the risks, signs and symptoms of heart disease by Dr. Celia Maxwell, director of the Women’s Health Institute at Howard University Hospital and then screened for heart disease risk factors by Howard University Hospital medical professionals. Major risk factors include high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, physical inactivity, and smoking. The campaign is co-chaired by Rima Al-Sabah, wife of Kuwait’s ambassador to the U.S., and Lady Manning, wife of the British ambassador. Members of their Steering Committee include ambassadors’ wives from Brazil, Canada, Qatar, Portugal, Hungary, the Netherlands, Colombia and Russia.
