Women and Heart Health Seminar
Learn About Heart Attack Signs and Symptoms in Women and How to Have a Heart-Healthy Lifestyle for Females of All Ages
Contrary to popular belief, men are not the chief victims of heart disease. The truth is that heart disease is an equal opportunity affliction. While about the same number of women as men have heart disease, it is by far the number one killer of women. Indeed, over 250,000 women die from the disease each year; more than the next 14 causes of death combined. In this presentation, Joe examines how primary cardiac risk factors - such as cholesterol, triglycerides, coronary inflammation, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, and others - impact women, and he helps attendees to calculate their personal risk. In addition, he covers women-specific topics such as hormone replacement therapy and signs of heart attack. With a heart-healthy lifestyle, women can prevent, stabilize and even reverse heart disease.

- How to identify early heart attack signs for women
- How to identify chronic heart disease symptoms in women
