Heart disease might be considered a man’s disease, but according to the American Heart Association, more than one in three women is living with some form of cardiovascular disease. Symptoms can be different for women, which can sometimes cause confusion. It’s important to recognize the symptoms and learn about treatments and preventive measures you can take.
Join Dr. Soundos Moualla, Medical Director of the Structural Heart Program at the James Family Heart Center at YRMC, for an enlightening presentation about specific issues related to women and heart disease. She’ll answer questions such as:
- What is heart disease and how is it diagnosed?
- How is it different for women?
- What symptoms should I be aware of?
- Are there risk factors for heart disease?
- What are the best treatments?
- What can I do to prevent heart disease?
This presentation is free of charge and will take place at the Prescott Valley Public Library, Crystal Room, 7401 E. Skoog Blvd., Prescott Valley on Thursday, February 20th from 12 noon to 1 PM.
