November Dinner Meeting: Heart Attack–Would You Know It If You Had One?
November 20, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
A presentation by staff from Mark Twain Medical Center
According to the Mayo Clinic, Heart disease is often thought to be more of a problem for men. However, it’s the most common cause of death for both women and men in the United States. Because some heart disease symptoms in women can differ from those in men, women often don’t know what to look for.
Fortunately, by learning their unique heart disease symptoms, women can begin to reduce their risks.
Cardiologist Dr. Amy Pollak, quoting statistics from AHA, says, “Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year. And 80% of cardiac events can be prevented.”
In memory of someone who left us too early…from a heart attack…Kathy, we miss you.
