The Following is the write up that appears on the event info page, I place it here for your convenience :
For nearly 30 years, heart disease has killed more women than men in the United States. Yet women continue to face lower rates of diagnosis, treatment, and survival. Many other diseases are disproportionately prevalent among women and may affect them differently, requiring gender-specific approaches to diagnosis and treatment. The disparities in care might have developed unintentionally, but the time has come to narrow them deliberately. Join us for a discussion of women's health, heart health, and the potential effects of gender on health.
