Women should be keenly aware of their risk for cardiovascular disease, says Dr. Shani Saks, cardiologist and director of Women's Heart and Wellness at Arizona Heart Institute.
Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) July 14, 2009
Arizona Heart Institute, (http://www.azheart.com), a leading provider of cardiovascular care, and EmpowHer, (http://www.empowher.com), the home for women's health online, today announced a content partnership. The videos and articles will feature heart and vascular disease diagnosis and prevention.
Arizona Heart Institute is also featured in EmpowHer's Provider Profile program, (http://www.empowher.com/providers/arizona-heart-institute), which shares information about Arizona Heart Institute's Women's Heart and Wellness program, Vein Center and other services designed to prevent and reverse the effects of cardiovascular disease. In addition, Arizona Heart Institute offers educational events free to the public which are listed on EmpowHer.
According to Michelle King Robson, "We are very pleased to be partnering with Arizona Heart Institute. Heart Disease continues to kill more women each year than all forms of cancer combined, and Arizona Heart is at the forefront of raising awareness about the importance of heart health."
"Women should be keenly aware of their risk for cardiovascular disease, says Dr. Shani Saks, cardiologist and director of Women's Heart and Wellness at Arizona Heart Institute. "Women often manifest symptoms of a heart disease quite differently than men and, therefore, tend to be diagnosed later in the disease process. The conventional thinking has been that women do not seek treatment early enough and that doctors do not treat women as aggressively as men. EmpowHer provides invaluable resources to women who are in search of answers and are motivated to take charge of their own health," continued Saks.
EmpowHer, (http://www.empowher.com) is a unique resource dedicated to improving women's health and well-being. EmpowHer provides up-to-date medical information, access to leading medical experts, advocates, and a devoted community of women who ask questions, share stories, and connect with one another in a safe and supportive environment.
