Women's Heart And Health: Stroke And Cardiovascular Health In Women Discussed By Dr. Lewis Morgenstern
This event was held on February 3, 2010 at Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
According to the American Heart Association: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) ranks first among all disease categories in hospital discharges for women. Nearly 37 percent of all female deaths in America occur from CVD. Yet, misperceptions still exist that CVD is not a real problem for women. Dr. Lewis Morgenstern, professor in the departments of Emergency Medicine, Neurology, and Neurosurgery at the University of Michigan, as well as director of the U-M Stroke Program, will examine this important issue. He will cover current trends and treatments in women's stroke and cardiovascular health issues, and what is being discovered through research.
This event is made possible through Partners In Research grants R03 NS065493 and R03 NS065491-0 from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke of the National Institutes of Health and is co-sponsored by the Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research and the UM Health Sciences Libraries.
