When women are asked about what they think their greatest health risk is, they usually respond with: breast cancer,
ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and maybe osteoporosis. Unfortunately, what they don’t think about is the greatest killer of women: cardiovascular disease. So come join in on Feb. 14th and have a discussion with Dr. Lowell Gerber about your heart! Topics include issues related to Women’s Health such as Nutrition, Exercise, Hormones, Vitamins and Micro-nutrients.
