Description: Heart disease is the number one cause of death for women - ahead of breast cancer, diabetes and stroke. One out of four women will be diagnosed with heart disease in her lifetime. Heart Disease claims the life of a woman almost every 80 seconds, yet only about half of women recognize that heart disease is their #1 killer. The good news? Education and lifestyle modifications can help prevent, reverse and decrease your risk for heart disease by 80%.

Join us for this complimentary 45 min webinar addressing the drivers of heart disease for women and practical tips for supporting better lifestyle and nutritional habits for your patients. Having an accurate understanding of the lifestyle factors that contribute to heart health and disease is a critical first step in supporting our female patients. During this webinar we’ll look at the truth about women’s heart health risk and discuss simple and applicable strategies to deploy in practice with two goals in mind - educating and inspiring our patients to take an active role in their health and improving clinical outcomes when it comes to women’s heart health. By the end of the webinar you can expect to have a solid understanding of how to help you prevent and treat heart disease for your female patients. You will also be equipped with downloadable, ready to use pdf patient handouts that can be applied to all patients regardless of your practice setting.

Suitable for: Providers, Nurses and Registered Dietitians looking for practical tools and resources that can be simply applied into clinical practice to improve clinical outcomes for women at risk for heart disease or women interested in improving heart health.
