Either you’re a woman or you know one: Help spread the message of women’s heart health


Heart disease is the #1 killer of women. Experts from Stanford’s Women’s Heart Health Clinic urge all women to know their numbers, listen to their bodies, and spread awareness about women’s heart disease.

If you’re not a woman, I bet you know a few who you love. Heart disease, although typically viewed as a man’s disease, happens to be the number one killer of women. The disease affects women of all backgrounds and ages and, because symptoms show themselves differently in women than men, women are often misdiagnosed.

It became clear to us that most women don’t think that heart disease will affect them, but the statistics show otherwise. Women’s Heart Health at Stanford graciously collaborated with Liat Kobza, my colleague, and me to create this video.

We hope the video will spread far and wide, so please share this with all the women you love and help save lives.
