Choices Women's Medical Center & Advanced Cardiovascular Diagnostics Launch Life Saving Heart Testing Program Commemorating International Women’s Month
Merle Hoffman, feminist leader, health care pioneer and Founder/President of Choices Women's Medical Center of Jamaica, Queens & Dr. Perry Frankel, author, lecturer and Founder of Advanced Cardiovascular Diagnostics hosting “Heart of the Matter Testing Day” at Choices Women's Medical Center located at 147-32 Jamaica Avenue, Jamaica, NY on March 19th, 2015 from 1 PM to 7 PM. Call 516 625-4042 for an appointment.
Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the U.S. Choices Women’s Medical Center and Advanced Cardio will offer life saving and non-invasive tests that screen for medical conditions causing heart attacks, strokes and undetected aneurysms. Tests take 30 minutes. Results are given on the spot. Advanced Cardiovascular Diagnostics’ motto is, “In a heartbeat, we can save your life.
Heart disease is 72% higher in African American women than in white women. Since 1984, more women than men have died annually and the gap between men/women survival continues to widen. Heart Disease causes death in one third of all women, is six times more lethal than breast cancer and almost two thirds of women who die from heart disease do not have any history or experience symptoms of chest pain.
“Historically, Choices is positioned on the front lines of women’s health, creating the first outpatient diagnosis and treatment center for breast cancer. We are now focusing on the greatest killer of women, heart disease,” states Choices Founder and President Merle Hoffman. “
Jamaica Queens Council Member, Roy Lancman, adds, “ Heart disease testing and treatment are critical medical services for everyone. I am proud that downtown Jamaica's very own Choices Women’s Medical Center is observing International Women’s Month by hosting “Heart of the Matter Testing Day.” Early testing, like that offered by Choices, is the right choice for women and their families.
Jamaica Center Business Improvement District is involved in promoting the event with outreach to local businesses, government officials and the press. BID Board President Michael Hirschhorn addressed the importance of heart health for athletes and performers; “Heart health is essential to achieve the highest level of performance, and focus. It is easier to relax while competing or performing and give it your all. “
Heart of the Matter Testing Day makes it easy to access life saving tests. All major insurances, Medicaid and Medicare will be accepted. Reasonable self-pay rates are available, however no one, regardless of their financial situation will be turned away.
