According to a 2012 survey by the American Heart Association, most women believed that breast cancer was the #1 killer of women. Katie Twomley, MD, Wake Forest Baptist Health Lexington Medical Center, and Sandy Tysinger, MSN, RN, PCCN, Wake Forest Baptist Health, present on the need to educate women about standard heart disease risks and risks specific to females. They also discuss heart attack signs and symptoms that are unique to women, diagnostic differences between men and women, and gender bias that occurs in the treatment of heart disease.
