Young at heart doesn’t always mean a healthy heart

Meet Sydney. She’s a 37-year-old Black woman. That puts her in a high-risk group for having a heart attack, despite her age.1

Sydney’s young and doesn’t know she’s at risk.

30% of heart attacks occur in people ages 35 to 54 and nearly 50% of Black women 20 and older have heart disease.1

Because Sydney’s a woman, her heart attack symptoms might go beyond chest pain to include indigestion, back or jaw pain, or shortness of breath.

A heart attack could put Sydney in the hospital for 2 to 7 days. She might need to take time off work to recover.2

Sydney could face catastrophic costs. Even with health insurance, nearly half of heart patients struggle to pay their medical bills.3
