Course Summary

Heart disease is a leading cause of death in woman in the United States. Women are more likely to die from a heart attack than from breast cancer. Furthermore, research indicates that more women than men die from cardiovascular disease each year. Health clinicians need to stay informed on the latest guidelines providing important information about the incidence, etiology and risk factors of heart disease in women. Healthy lifestyle choices are essential to the prevention of heart disease, and topics related to diet, exercise, weight control, and smoking cessation are discussed.
