February is "Go Red for Women", a program sponsored by the American Heart Association, stressing the need for women to learn more about heart disease, and the additional efforts women need to take regarding their heart. Heart disease is no longer a mans disease.
Dr. Amy Woodruff, a cardiologist at St. Luke's Texas Heart Institute, in Houston, TX, will be a guest with Dr. Galati Sunday, February 10, 2008. Dr. Woodruff is a regular contributer to Your Health First, and every year discusses women's heart issues with Dr. Galati.
The American Heart Association web site has excellent information on the Go Red for Women program, as well as other excellent pages on general healthy heart information for the patient and consumer. The most impressive part of the American Heart Association web site this year is a self assessment you can take on line, to see what specific risks you may have regarding heart disease, and the interventions that you may need to consider.
Excellent links related to women's heart issues, and general heart disease concerns are listed below.
