Healing Hearts, Saving Lives: Empowering Strategies for Women

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the US, although much of it is preventable. Particularly problematic, women often fail to recognize their own risk factors and struggle to have their symptoms identified and acknowledged by the wider medical establishment. The good news ... women do have the power to take charge of their heart health at every age — and this informative seminar presented for American Heart Month demonstrates how.

Dr. Stacey Rosen, a cardiologist and the American Heart Association's 2021 Physician of the Year, provides the latest information about factors that impact women’s heart health at each stage of life. You'll also hear dramatic personal stories from Hadassah members who have faced and conquered heart health obstacles. And you'll get the tools you need to take charge of your heart health in your daily life and with your medical provider, and help save lives by learning how to advocate for policy change.
