Women and Heart Disease

Cardiologist Aliya Browne, D.O., discusses the differences between heart disease in women and men. While about the same number of women and men die of the disease annually, fewer women survive their first heart attack. In many cases, women don’t realize they’re experiencing a heart attack since their symptoms aren’t always clear or well understood. Learn more during this informative question and answer session. Dr. Browne is currently accepting new cardiology patients in West Branch. To inquire about becoming a patient, call (989) 343-1130.
