Understanding and Preventing Heart Disease in Women: A Conversation with Cardiologist Elizabeth Grey from the Minneapolis Heart Institute
Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of women and that death rates are increasing in women ages 35 to 54? Too many of us women are not aware, nor do we know about the risk factors and warning signs that are unique to women. But knowledge is power and, in many cases, heart disease in women and related deaths are preventable. Women of all ages need the information Dr. Elizabeth Grey provides in her conversation with Marti in this week’s Mom Enough show. This is crucial information not only for our own health, but also our children’s, whether they are infants or teens; it’s never too early to establish healthy patterns that help prevent heart disease.
