Alicia Taylor, RN, left, and Patricia Richardson, RN, discuss plans for Strong Women, Strong Hearts.
Studies have shown that heart disease affects women differently than men, most notably in its symptoms. While doctors still consider chest pain as an important symptom of heart attack, chest pain is not necessarily a symptom in women.
Women of all ages are encouraged to attend “Strong Women, Strong Hearts” to learn more about their heart but they must register by calling Upstate Connect at (315) 464-8668.
