Women and Heart Disease

Hosted by Joanne Mazzarelli, MD

Heart disease is still the Number 1 killer of women in America. In fact, nearly 1 in 4 women will die from heart disease every year. But there is some good news about this deadly disease: many of its risk factors can be controlled or treated. Some, like age and heredity, require patient awareness and regular screenings.

Join Cooper Heart Institute cardiologist Joanne K. Mazzarelli, MD, on Thursday, November 19 from Noon-12:30 p.m. for a special Health eTalk on Women and Heart Disease. Dr. Mazzarelli will answer your questions and provide information on all things related to the heart health of women -- from prevention, to symptoms, to treatment and screening recommendations.
