Barbara Streisand Attacks the No. 1 ‘Lady Killer’

It’s the number one killer of women in the world—more than all cancers combined. One woman will die from it every minute. 

Are you shocked to learn that this “lady killer” is…heart disease? 

Actress and women’s rights activist Barbra Streisand sat down with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric in an exclusive interview to discuss her efforts to educate women about heart disease. Streisand, who founded the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in 2012, has teamed up with philanthropist Ronald Perelman to raise awareness, encourage action and drive new research to fight women’s heart disease.
