Advice for Women from a Cardiologist

This information is useful for adults

More women than men die from heart attacks, but are less likely to be treated. Cardiologist Lisa Freed, MD discusses risk factors and available treatments for women with heart disease. "Women are not only the caretakers of their own health, they are the caretakers of the health of their family," says Dr. Freed. 

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
