Make the Call - Heart Attacks in Women
St. Joseph's is proud to promote a new campaign from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office on Women's Health. This campaign was developed to help women understand the most common symptoms of a heart attack, and to encourage them to call 9-1-1 should they experience any one of them.
Although women often think of heart attack as something that affects mainly men, heart disease is the number one killer of women. Every 90 seconds, a woman in the United States has a heart attack. Sadly, research shows that only half of women indicated they would call 9-1-1 had they known they were having a heart attack. Even worse, fewer were aware of the most common symptoms.
