Women's Heart Health
With Sasanka Jayasuriya, MD
Our well-attended Women's Heart lecture, held in March 2016, featured cardiologist and women's heart health specialist, Dr. Sasanka Jasuriya, Greenwich Hospital and Yale New Haven Hospital, assistant professor of medicine, Yale University.
"I tell my patients to take any discomfort that seems unusual very seriously. If you have pain or unfamiliar discomfort from the jaw to the navel and cannot easily explain it, or if it's a sensation that is something you've never experienced before, it could be your heart," Dr. Jayasuriya said.
Dr. Jayasuriya discussed risk factors and the newest therapies for treating heart disease and shared information about a new national initiative aimed at improving awareness of heart disease in women.
