Grassroots Advocacy Radio with Marsha Padilla-Goad: Conversations to Educate, Empower, and Engage: February is American Heart Month!February is American Heart Month! According to the Centers for Disease Control, Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, killing 289,758 women in 2013—that’s about 1 in every 4 female deaths. Although heart disease is sometimes thought of as a “man’s disease,” around the same number of women and men die each year of heart disease in the United States. Despite increases in awareness over the past decade, only 54% of women recognize that heart disease is their number 1 killer.

Join the conversation with Dr. Icilma Fergus, Director of Cardiovascular Disparities at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Mount Sinai Medical Center. We will also meet two heart disease survivors, Gail Harris-Berry and Daniela Leonhardt. They will share their journey with heart disease and how they are giving back through being advocates for the American Heart Association.
