Women and Heart Disease
What You Don't Know May Kill You

Summary

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Dr. Lawrence H. Cohn, advisor and supporter of this Forum in addition to others in the The Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forums series.

Deadlier than all forms of cancer combined, heart disease is the leading cause of death of U.S. women. Sometimes this killer comes with symptoms signaling a potentially deadly problem. Sometimes not. Even when symptoms manifest, the signs in women can be so different from those in men that the symptoms are misdiagnosed or overlooked. This Forum event provided a concise overview of the causes and forms of heart disease in women — and then explored today’s leading-edge prevention and treatment strategies. The inaugural event in The Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forums, this webcast was in collaboration with The Huffington Post.
