Sharing the secrets of women's heart health

As part of Heart Health Month in February, women had their questions about heart disease answered by University of Minnesota experts—while enjoying wine and chocolate.

The women-only Take Heart event, presented by the Minnesota Medical Foundation and the University’s Lillehei Heart Institute, provided attendees with an open Q&A session with a health-care professional and a scientist.

Lynn Hoke, N.P., R.N., M.S.N., a nurse at the University’s Rasmussen Center for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention, answered questions about early detection and management of heart disease in women. And internationally renowned researcher Doris Taylor, Ph.D., director of the University’s Center for Cardiovascular Repair, discussed her cell therapy research and how it might be a factor in the future of women’s heart health.

Planning for the next Take Heart event is currently under way.Women, watch your mailboxes this fall for an invitation!
