WISEWOMAN (Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for WOMen Across the Nation) is a program created to help women understand and reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke by providing services to promote lasting heart-healthy lifestyles. WISEWOMAN helps integrate innovative and evidence-based approaches to heart disease and stroke prevention within health care systems and throughout communities.

Quality Insights has partnered with the Delaware Division of Public Health to encourage and assist providers in becoming a WISEWOMAN site. The WISEWOMAN program enables qualifying women to receive free screenings and counseling about their risk for heart disease and stroke. Women are then supported as they participate in evidence-based lifestyle programs, individual health coaching, or referred to other community resources. The services are all designed to promote lifelong heart-healthy lifestyle changes. To learn more, please download the WISEWOMAN program flyer.
