No matter your age, it is never too early or too late to start educating yourself about heart health.
Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
Home Care Assistance of Southern Fairfield County, North America’s leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is proud to announce the next installment in its renowned Healthy Longevity Webinar Series. The upcoming webinar will feature Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, attending cardiologist and Director of Women’s Heart Health at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, National Spokesperson for the American Heart Association’s Go Red Campaign, and author. The webinar will cover the issues surrounding women and heart disease, what heart disease is and what to do about it. Heart disease is the number one killer of women, more than all cancers combined. It is widely underdiagnosed and undertreated. During the webinar, Dr. Steinbaum will discuss lifestyle changes linked to heart health as presented in her recently-released book, Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum’s Heart Book: Every Woman’s Guide to a Heart Healthy Life.
The webinar will be held on Wednesday, August 27th, at 10:00 AM Pacific, 2:00 PM Eastern. Dr. Steinbaum will reserve the last 15 minutes of the webinar for a Q&A session, so we encourage attendees to come prepared with questions. Space is limited, so make sure to reserve your seat as soon as possible by registering here: http://bit.ly/hearthealthwebinar.
"Heart disease is 80 to 90% preventable, and it is never too late,” said Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum. “I think education and awareness is the key to empowering yourself to make the best lifestyle choices to lead the healthiest life."
Dr. Steinbaum has devoted her career to the treatment of heart disease through early detection, education, and prevention. She has done fellowship training in both Preventive Cardiology and Cardiology, and is currently a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology. Often cited in magazines and newspapers, such as Self, Glamour, More, Fitness, The Wall Street Journal and Family Circle, she has written on the topics of cardiac prevention and nutrition, and lectured nationally on the topics of coronary artery disease, women and heart disease, natural and alternative ways of treating heart disease, and the prevention of heart disease. She is also regularly interviewed for breaking news in U.S. News and World Report, Healthday and WebMD, and featured on network news health segments for ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and FOX as a leading consultant in the field of women and heart disease, preventive cardiology and topics of lifestyle management. She has been awarded a New York Times Super Doctor, and a Castle and Connolly Top Doctor for Cardiovascular Disease.
