Heart health awareness for women – 1
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters, I’m Joe Balintfy. Though heart disease deaths continue to decline in American women, experts emphasize the importance of increasing awareness about heart disease in women, and recommend action to protect their heart health. Dr. Nakela Cook at the NIH says many women don't take their risk for heart disease seriously or personally.
Cook: It’s important that they understand their risk for heart disease and that they have a personal conversation with their doctors about their risk as well as ways that they can reduce their risk.
Narrator: For more information on reducing heart disease risk, improving heart health, and resources from The Heart Truth®, visit www.nhlbi.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
