Think men and women are just the same? No, I didn’t think so. But when it comes to heart disease, much of what the medical community talks about is focused on men’s heart health. So on the Healthy Matters radio broadcast last Sunday, we focused on women’s heart health.
I was joined in the WCCO studios by two women whose careers are focused on caring for hearts. They are Dr. Michelle Carlson, a cardiologist, and Jill Jordan, a Certified Physician Assistant with clinical practice in Cardiology. Not only are these two really knowledgeable about cardiology in general, they are particularly tuned into the health of women. Not only that, they do cool work with cancer and heart disease. And I can personally vouch that they are approachable providers with a good listening ear and wise advice for their patients.
Three things you can do to learn more:
- Listen to the podcast of the Women’s Heart Health show by clicking the logo here. It is Healthy Mattes Show #482, April 8, 2018
- Click Dr. Carlson and Jill Jordan’s pictures here for their bio and contact information, or go to the Heart Center at Hennepin Healthcare to learn more and including info on making appointments.
- Read on for brief and informative answers to listener questions that we did not have time for on the radio broadcast. Heart attack, jaw pain, ischemia, family history, varicose veins, valves, exercise, diet, yoga. It’s all here! The responses are directly from Dr. Carlson and Jill Jordan. Don’t miss the last question (scroll down!) about heart disease and cancer. Pictures and links, too!
