InCrowd, helping the pharmaceutical industry make smart decisions faster shares results from a heart healthy survey focused on preventing cardiovascular disease in women. To support the American Heart Association and their Go Red For Women campaign, InCrowd tapped the power of their cardiology Crowd to identify heart healthy activities that can help women live longer, healthier lives.

“We’re a company founded by women and we felt it was important to use our voice to educate on the prevention of heart disease in women,” says Kathleen Poulos, Co-Founder and CMO of InCrowd. “Heart disease kills almost eleven hundred women every day, we hope our sharing this information will encourage more women to adopt a heart healthy lifestyle.”

The survey results were clear, over 66% of cardiologists identified avoiding tobacco as the most effective way to prevent heart disease in women. Eating a healthy diet and increased public education on recognizing the signs of heart disease and risk factors faced by women were also listed as leading preventative measures.

The cardiologists went on to suggest living an overall healthy lifestyle, incorporating several heart healthy activities into their daily lives could provide women the best opportunity to lower risk and prevent heart disease. Surprisingly, the cardiologists surveyed listed getting adequate sleep and managing stress as the least effective activities when it comes to preventing heart disease.
