Heart Attack: More common for men but more deadly for women.
You may think you know everything you need to know about preventing a heart attack, but chances are, you don’t. Heart disease is our nation’s number one killer, and yet every year, there are approximately 500,000 heart attack deaths in the U.S. Half of these victims die before they even get to the hospital! Join expert cardiologist Dr. Sridevi Pitta, one of the most highly trained heart doctors in the U.S., at our free health education seminar to learn more about the early signs of a heart attack, the differences in heart disease for men and women, and the new blood tests that diagnose a heart attack more quickly and accurately than ever before. Knowing what you need to know may save your life or the life of one you love.
