More women die of heart disease annually than men. Few women, however, perceive heart disease as their greatest health threat, even though the disease claims more lives than the next four leading causes of death combined.
Dr. Retu Saxena of the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation® joined Twin Cities in Motion’s Charlie Maher on the Move. Together. Podcast to discuss women’s heart health issues. Saxena was also joined by Natasha Karn, a Twin Cities attorney who suffered a heart attack 36 weeks into her third pregnancy and shares the story of her diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.
Listen to a comprehensive conversation about women’s heart health — the seriousness of the disease, the state of research, important risk factors, and preventative lifestyle choices – on this episode of Move. Together.
