Description

The differences between men and women go well beyond just the reproductive organs.   

The way that women display symptomology for heart conditions is different.  Heart Disease is the #1 killer of women and yet studies show that women do not receive the same cardiac care as men.   Their pain is often dismissed or downplayed by doctors and they are often just sent to a psychiatrist for anxiety instead.  

Your female patients depend on you.  You’ll learn:  

  • The critical differences between a male and female heart and their impact on symptoms 
  • Red flags that other practitioners often overlook 
  • Effective assessment strategies for identifying CVD risk 

You will walk away with many pearls of wisdom from this cardiac expert to implement into your daily practice and personal life.   Become the person who has the confidence and skills to deliver the very best care for your female patients!
