According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common type of heart disease.

If you have a heart problem, your doctor may want you to have a procedure or surgery done, or a device implanted. You should always discuss a procedure with your doctor, so you know exactly what’s involved during and after. It’s a good idea to have someone with you, to help you ask questions and remember information.

National Wear Red Day is the first Friday in February, where women are encouraged to wear red to raise awareness about heart disease being the number one killer of women. “This is something that is personally dear to my heart,” stated Dr. Heather Stahura. “The staggering thing is, 1 out of every 3 women will die of a cardiovascular disease issue over the span of their lives. That’s our sisters, our mothers, our daughters, our friends. I think that is what the Go Red for Women (movement) is about: informing us of our risk, starting that conversation with our doctor, and making the change to live our healthiest life.”read more
