Studies show that one-third of women underestimate their own personal risk of getting heart disease and many still die from heart disease. Wenter Blair is the Vice President of the FH Foundation. Familial Hypercholesterolemia is a genetic lipid disorder that if left untreated or even under treated will lead to potentially lethal cardiovascular disease. Bio-statisticians indicate that 1in every 500 individuals have this disorder and yet it is believed that less than 10% are ever diagnosed. It is her mission to change that through awareness, action and a stalwart stand in defense of patient rights.
