It's Heart Month and today is National Wear Red Day, the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Movement. Did you know Heart Disease is the NUMBER 1 health threat to women?
The statistics are staggering...
Heart Disease kills one woman every 80 secs
1 in 3 women are dying from cardiovascular disease
And most women are unaware.
These two fine ladies dedicate their lives to ensuring we are healthy and our hearts keep ticking. The least we could do was dedicate our month to them.
Dr. Brittany Stofko is a board certified OB/GYN and offers comprehensive women's health care for all ages. She is often the first health care provider to identify potential heart concerns and sometimes the only health care provider a women sees annually.
Dr. Karen Gersch is a board certified cardiothoracic surgeon specializing in cardiovascular, heart and lung care and surgery. Her resume and reputation are hard to compete with as one of Charleston's top surgeons and advocates for womens health.
They are are queens, our resource, our saviors. Be on the lookout for more from these rockstars this month!
