Globally, heart disease is a leading killer of women; with ischaemic heart disease now the second leading cause of death for Australian women. Other emerging heart diseases include SCAD, Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy and Peripartum Cardiomyopathy and women experience different signs and symptoms than men for coronary artery disease and heart attacks.
Education is a key pillar for reducing the incidence of heart disease. According to the World Health Organisation’s ‘Impact assessment – low education levels are linked with poor health, more stress and lower self-confidence’.
The sessions will focus on increasing education levels with information that is easy to understand and digest and promote discussion around heart health checks, what they consist of and how to access them.
