On Thursday, May 1, from 7:30 – 9:00 pm at the Boulder JCC, learn about heart disease and how to prevent it. Sponsored by Boulder Hadassah, University of Colorado Hospital and the Boulder JCC, this important program for women of all ages is open to the entire community. Presented by Barbara Abrahams, MD, FACC,  Women and Heart Disease is part of Every Beat Counts: Hadassah’s Heart Health Program, a national initiative that educates, engages, and empowers women to live healthy lifestyles by learning symptoms and prevention tips for women’s heart disease.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death among American women. Nearly 500,000 women in the U.S. will die this year from heart disease—almost double the number of deaths from all types of cancer combined.

Recently relocated to Boulder from Ann Arbor, Michigan, and with over 20 years in practice, Dr. Abrahams has a particular interest in clinical cardiology and non-invasive cardiac imaging.  Dr. Abrahams is board-certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease, echocardiography and nuclear cardiology.  She founded a pioneering clinic for women with heart disease and has authored many articles, including several concerning pharmacologic stress testing.

RSVPs appreciated. Please contact Sandy Friedman at 303-257-3995 or sfriedman4@gmail.com.

No charge to attend. Light refreshments will be served
