Barbra Streisand Take the Fight Against Women's Heart Disease to Capitol Hill


WASHINGTON, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Barbra Streisand brought her passion for women's heart disease to Capitol Hill today where she met with key Congressional leaders and the Senate and House Women's Caucuses. Ms. Streisand also met with senior officials from National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Her message was clear.
"Heart disease is the number one killer of women, killing more women than all cancers combined.[i] Since 1984, more women than men have died every year from heart disease.[ii] It's time for more funding, more research, and more attention for women's heart disease," said Streisand.
Streisand became an advocate for women's heart disease prevention, education, and treatment years ago when she learned that women's heart disease is often symptomatically and physiologically different from men, yet most heart disease research has been performed on men. In 2012, she founded the Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute to identify female-pattern heart disease, develop new diagnostic tools, and advance specialized care for women.
Today, she met with Members of Congress to urge them to consider the expansion of existing women's heart health initiatives, increased focus on gender-specific data for heart research, and increased funding for women's heart disease prevention and research. Recognizing that women's heart disease strikes regardless of political party affiliation, she was determined to make this trip completely bipartisan. On Capitol Hill she visited with Sen. Richard Durbin, Sen. John McCain, Rep. Steny Hoyer and other congressional leaders. Her meeting with the Bipartisan Women's Caucus of the U.S. Senate was convened by Sen. Barbara Mikulski and Sen. Susan Collins. Her meeting with the Bipartisan Women's Caucus of the House of Representatives was coordinated by co-chairs of the Women's Health Caucus, Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler and Rep. Donna Edwards.  
Streisand was accompanied by leading cardiologists, C. Noel Bairey Merz, MD, FACC, Director of the Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute and Holly S. Andersen, MD, Attending Cardiologist and Director of Education & Outreach at the Perelman Heart Institute at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. The doctors gave legislators a look at the front lines of this battle.
During the meetings, Streisand and her guests also called attention to the exceptional work of organizations like Sister to Sister, WomenHeart, and the Society for Women's Health Research, each of which bring light to this issue and advance women's heart health.
Yet, when it comes to women and heart disease, little has changed in the past 50 years. While men's prognosis has improved, the American Heart Association reports that 42 percent of women who have heart attacks die within one year compared with 24 percent of men.[iii]
"The fact is a woman's heart is different from a man's,[iv] yet women's hearts are under-researched, go untreated, and are misdiagnosed,"[v] Streisand says. "Together, we can change that."
Currently in the U.S., only a small amount ($246 million) is spent on women's heart disease research. In comparison, $959 million is spent on women's cancer research (breast, ovarian, cervical, endometrial and uterine).[vi] This level of commitment in women's cancer is important, and has brought great progress and saved lives. Streisand believes it's time to bring women's cardiovascular research funding to similar levels.
"The time is now. One woman dies nearly every minute from heart disease. We cannot let another year pass when another 400,000 of our fellow women die because these disparities aren't addressed," said Streisand.[vii]

About the Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Heart InstituteThe Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center plays a leadership role in pioneering research, education, and training that is uncovering the difference between men's and women's hearts—and advancing women's heart health. 
About the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute The Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute is internationally recognized for outstanding heart care built on decades of innovation and leading-edge research. From cardiac imaging and advanced diagnostics to surgical repair of complex heart problems to the training of the heart specialists of tomorrow and research that is deepening medical knowledge and practice, the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute is known around the world for excellence and innovations.

DA Jana Duty: Stop a life sentence for pot brownies

  1. Robert ButlerPetition by
    Round Rock, TX

    This petition will be delivered to:
    District Attorney, Williamson County
    Jana Duty

    DA Jana Duty: Stop a life sentence for pot browniesJacob Lavoro is a teenager facing life in prison for baking marijuana brownies in Round Rock, Texas. He's a young man who has never been in trouble with the law before, and has always been a great kid who we love very much. I started the petition because I live in the same city as Jacob Lavoro and I felt a responsibility to help stand up for him. Our county has a history of excessively punishing minor crimes or even innocent people to "send a message" that has little do with justice or the best interests of the community.
    In this case, the sentencing rules are being abused and stretched to increase a punishment that does not fit the allegations.  The police apparently included the full weight of the brownies: flour, sugar, water, etc and the plastic containers that held them to determine the weight of the illegal hash oil used to bake the brownies.
    If our petition can convince Jana Duty, the District Attorney in Williamson County, to follow through on her campaign promises to clean up Williamson County's justice system and offer alternative sentencing options then we hope that there will be justice for Jacob Lavoro and that county residents can breathe easier under a less oppressive atmosphere.
    If Jacob Lavoro receives a harsh sentence, it will destroy this young man's life and leave a permanent mark of injustice in Williamson County, Texas. Please join us today to stand up against unfair sentencing and ruining a young man's life.

    Sign and share the petition today!

Nick Nanton and JW Dicks to Executive Produce New Documentary Film



ORLANDO, Fla., June 4, 2014 / Emmy® Award Winning Director and Producer Nick Nanton, Esq. and Emmy® Award Winning Producer JW Dicks have joined Shaina Koren and Mike Esposito, independent filmmakers and co-founders of Shaina Koren Cinematography, to produce a new inspirational documentary film. The film, titled "The Rebound," is a feature-length documentary about a wheelchair basketball team and the quest of several adaptive athletes to overcome adversity in search of new opportunities.

View "The Rebound" trailer here:
The film, 2 years in the making, provides an insider's perspective of the sport, following the Miami Heat Wheels on their underdog quest to rise to the top ranks of the league. "The Rebound" reveals the inspiring, although at times tragic, portrait of the struggle that adaptive athletes face to realize their dreams while adapting to overcome their biggest challenges. While learning to live with their (dis)abilities, these athletes manage to find hope and work tirelessly to create life-changing opportunities for themselves through the sport.
The players featured in the story are beyond charismatic. While both hungry and passionate about the game, they must battle daily with their own internal struggles as well as the inequalities of an able-bodied world. Ultimately they all must find a way to focus on what they can do, rather than what they cannot. They do this through the sport. Wheelchair basketball provides life-changing opportunities, but is often cast aside as just another cause or charity. This film shows not only the action, but the impact of wheelchair basketball beyond the court.
Nick Nanton will also lend his expertise as a director to the post-production of the film alongside Shaina Koren and Mike Esposito. Mike and Shaina remarked, "We first discovered the sport in mid 2012 when we met the coach of the Miami Heat Wheels. After meeting the players and witnessing the sport in action, our curiosity took control and we began filming to uncover a deeper story. Two years later, we are fully immersed in the wheelchair basketball community and have dedicated 23 months (and counting) to capturing this unique story."
Other Producers of the film include Pete D'Arruda, Josh Felber, Rod Polston, Mikkel Pitzner and Michael D. Congdon (Assoc. Producer.)
The film is currently being crowdfunded on Indiegogo. Learn more and donate here:
