heart of a woman

Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States, yet many women are unaware of their risk factors and potential symptoms, which differ from those of men. Increased awareness is key to preventing heart problems. Thus, Heart of a Woman is designed to educate women about the gender-specific symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease and how women can proactively improve their own heart health. Attendees can customize the experience with small-group breakout sessions in the afternoon.
