Women’s Cardiac Health & Research at Long Beach Memorial
The goal of the Center for Women’s Cardiac Health & Research is to identify and treat heart disease and stroke risk factors in women using evidence-based guidelines. The Center is supported by highly-trained Advanced Practice Nurses and Board-Certified Cardiologists. Each woman is given an individualized treatment plan to reduce risk of heart disease, along with recommendations for further evaluation and testing if needed. And most of them ride bike or run too!

Bike Infrastructure – Reimagining our Cities
California Bike Coalition
The California Bike Coalition works to maintain, improve and expand bikeways, improve bicycle access, increase women’s cycling safety through education, enforcement and hazard removal, get lockers and showers and workplaces and bike parking everywhere it is need and create a regional network of bike trails. Our work affects the health and livability of the entire California region. Half of all trips are no more than three miles in length, and cars are used for 60% of all trips a mile or less. We want to see those trips made by bicycle rather than automobile whenever it is possible.
Riding your bike instead of driving your car does so much to improve your health (while not seeming like a “workout”), it protects our air (by a whopping amount) and creates livable communities that are beautiful and interesting. Women like to cycle on safe roads. SDCBC helps make that happen.
