Women & Heart Disease Live Chat – February 14th

womens-heart260x200Heart disease is now the #1 killer in women. The good news is, most heart disease is preventable — and early detection saves lives. Heart disease occurs when fatty build-up in your coronary arteries, called plaque, prevents blood flow that’s needed to provide oxygen to your heart. When the blood flow that brings oxygen to the heart muscle is severely reduced, or completely cut off, a heart attack occurs.

The Emory Women’s Heart Center is a collaborative group of providers that treats patients using a team approach. They are dedicated to screening, diagnosing, treating and preventing heart disease in Atlanta’s women. The most important weapon against heart disease is awareness. Women need to research their family history and take time to educate themselves on not only the risk factors and symptoms of heart disease, but preventive medicine as well.

Join Emory Women’s Heart Center physician, Alexis Cutchins, MD, on Tuesday, February 14 at 12pm EST for an online web chat on women and heart disease. She will be available to answer your questions regarding topics such as: challenges women face specific to heart disease, heart disease prevention, the importance of getting treatment right away and the research underway to combat heart disease in women. Sign up for this live chat below!
