Board Chair

I am continually impressed and inspired by the research and community outreach efforts of the Sarver Heart Center.  As a donor and congenital heart disease survivor, I know the importance of this work first-hand and am personally grateful to be a part of it.

Sarver Heart Center members share their time and expertise with our communities. Attending tours and events gives us a rare opportunity to see how the Sarver Heart Center works to research causes and develop cures for cardiovascular disease.

Heart disease is the number one killer of women, surpassing all forms of cancer combined! With your support, we hope to further the realization that heart disease in women, especiallly women of color, carries a special set of challenges that requires significant research.

Though the Sarver Heart Center has made significant advances in the detection and treatment of heart disease, we continue to lose too many mothers, sisters and daughters to this killer. Additional research, specifically in heart disease in women, is one of our top priorities.

Remember that a healthy lifestyle is an important component to your own “future free of heart disease and stroke.”

On behalf of the University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center, and the Community Coalition for Heart Health Education for Women of Color, thank you for your interest in supporting heart health research and education in women.

Wanda has served as Chair of the SHC Community Coalition for Heart Health Education for Women of Color since 2009.

She has served as Co-Chair of the Women's Heart Health Education Committee since 2019.
