Talk about heart-warming.

Barbra Streisand has endowed Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with a $5 million philanthropic gift in order to establish the Barbra Streisand Women's Cardiovascular Research and Education Program.

"Women need to be educated about female cardiovascular disease, and the medical community must be propelled toward change," Streisand said. "Just like with breast cancer, the impetus must come from women themselves striving to become empowered to reduce their risks for heart disease."

The program will seek to empower and educate women about cardiovascular disease and raise awareness of overall heart health.
