Listen to Your Heart
One in four women will die from heart-related complications, but only slightly over half are aware of that sobering fact. I want women to know that there is so much they can do to avoid becoming part of that statistic.
Risks and symptoms can change at different stages in your life, like during pregnancy and menopause, so it’s vital to know the warning signs and keep a lifelong eye on your heart health.
