Every Bite Counts: Hadassah's Nutrition Program

Eat Healthier with Every Bite Counts: Hadassah’s Nutrition Program
Join the push for heart health with Every Bite Counts: Hadassah's Nutrition Program, bringing innovative recipes, practical tips, and heart healthy cooking.  Hadassah units in communities around the country can create their own fun events -- food trucks, chef demos, and cook-offs - and individuals can help educate and activate online. Together, we’ll help women stay healthy across the generations. We'll help you get started on the path to a healthier heart.

At Hadassah, we're committed to saving lives and advancing women’s heart health in the US, Israel, and around the world. With your help, Hadassah research, prevention, and advocacy efforts will help more women live longer, healthier lives. 

Support Women’s Heart Health & Innovation at Hadassah’s Hospitals in Israel

Our diverse community outreach and HMO’s innovative treatment protocols are redefining women’s cardiac care in Israel, the US and around the world. At HMO’s Linda Joy Pollin Cardiovascular Wellness Center for Women and the Irma and Paul Milstein Heart Center, pioneering doctors have significantly altered our understanding of male-female differences in heart health and are forging ahead with new protocols that will save more women’s lives. Hadassah is leading the way.


Be a Hadassah Advocate for Gender Equity in Medicine

We’re proud to be building on our legacy as a leading advocate for women’s health. In the US, we advocate for gender equity in medicine — in research, diagnosis, treatment, and access to care — including in heart health and with our partners in the Coalition for Women's Health Equity, which we founded in 2016. Speak out. It's easy to become a Hadassah advocate. We'll provide all the tools you need to take action online, advocate in person at a Day in the District, and keep up with new developments.
