burden of heart disease in women at the 4th annual Gender Medicine Congress to take place
June 2 in Vienna, Austria. Heart disease in on the rise globally as more and more industrialized
nations are impacted. This is chiefly related to lifestyle choices, which means it is
preventable. That's why WHF's welness programs are being featured at this international forum.
Women's heart disease symptoms may be quieter than men's, but it's time we listened and wake
up to the wellness movement.
Take Care of Your Heart.
