February 2012

Happy heart health month to all of our readers! This month, take control of your heart health. February’s Question of Health focuses on women’s heart disease, and ways to prevent it from happening to you. Check out our features section for additional ways to increase your heart health through diet and exercise.

A Question of Health

Every month Women’s Health Matters will be recruiting an expert to answer a question about a health issue that’s in the news or on women’s minds.

This month’s topic:  Heart Disease Symptoms

In February, we asked Jennifer Price, an advanced practice nurse with the Women’s Cardiovascular Health Initiative at Women’s College Hospital, for information on the differences in heart disease symptoms between men and women, and tips for maintaining heart health. Read more on maintaining heart health here.
