How is heart disease is different for men and women.

Belfast -

BELFAST -¬† Ccardiologist, Dr. Dennis DeSilvey, will discuss, ‚ÄúHeart Disease for Men and Women: The Similarities and the Differences‚Ä̬† at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14, at the Education Center at Waldo County General Hospital.
The reality is that nearly six times as many women die annually from heart attacks as from breast cancer. And nearly two-thirds of the deaths from heart attacks in women occur among those who have no history of chest pain. For most, the first warning sign of a heart attack is a sudden onset of extreme weakness that feels like the flu. For more information, call 930 6763.
