For too long, heart disease has been considered a man's problem. In fact, one in three women will get coronary artery disease - and a woman is more likely to die from heart disease than a man. One reason is that heart disease tends to be hidden longer in women. Another is that it's generally understood less. Both reasons lead to problems being under-diagnosed and untreated, with delays in treatment that can be the biggest obstacle to recovery.
In the fight against heart disease, knowledge is power. Marshfield Clinic Women's Wellness is an opportunity for you to be more informed - and to have access to an exceptional pool of specialists and subspecialists in women's cardiac care.
