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.

Directions: The HealthLink OASIS Learning Center is located at 6333 Rt. 298 in East Syracuse, next to DoubleTree Hotel off Carrier Circle. Enter the parking lot via the DoubleTree entry road and turn right. There is plenty of free parking.
