Featuring Doris Frazier, vice president of cardiovascular services at Mercy General Hospital.
The Folsom Telegraph interviewed Doris Frazier, vice president of cardiovascular services at Mercy General Hospital, about women’s heart health. According to Frazier, heart disease claims more American lives every year than all forms of cancer combined. Annually, 11 times more women die of heart disease than breast cancer. “Many women are surprised to learn that not only does heart disease kill more women than men every year, 64 percent of the women who die suddenly from heart disease had no previous symptoms,” Frazier said. “Every 1 in 2.5 women will develop heart disease.”
Frazier is the guest speaker at the upcoming Folsom Women’s Connection luncheon on Feb. 11, 2015.
