PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – February is American Heart Month and that means it it is a time to raise awareness of heart disease. While men and women get it, there are different risk factors for women. 9 out of 10 women have at least one or more risk factors for heart disease. Dr.Renee Morales from Bon Secours Western Branch OB/GYN was in The Hampton Roads Show studio this morning to explain what those risk factors are and how some pregnancy complications can increase a woman’s risk for heart disease later in life.
Bon Secours is offering FREE Heart Screenings on February 20th and March 12th. For More Information on Screening events and the Bon Secours Heart Care Package, visit HEARTCHECK757.com.
This segment of The Hampton Roads Show is sponsored by Bon Secours.
