In this Episode
The only thing women tend to do better than men after having a heart attack is die. That’s a sobering mic drop. It’s also a fact and one that this week’s guest Dr. Martha Gulati is making her life’s work to change. We dive into the special heart disease risk factors women, especially menopausal women face, even if they’re active and fit, what you need to know about your cardiovascular health, and how to prioritize your heart health and cardiovascular care.
Dr. Gulati is the President of the American Society for Preventive Cardiology and the author of the best-seller, “Saving Women’s Hearts”. She is the principal investigator of the St. James Women Take Heart Project, a study examining cardiac risk factors in women, which set standards for women’s fitness levels and heart rate response to exercise in women. She also is a co-investigator on the Women Ischemic Syndrome Evaluation (WISE) and previously served as a co-investigator on the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI). She has published articles in peer-reviewed publications, including The New England Journal of Medicine, Circulation, and Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). She has also been featured on Oprah. Her practice is exclusively women, including many active women and she is a runner herself.
