February is designated as American Heart Month, so over the next few weeks the Women’s Health Research Institute will join many other organizations in recognizing this important health issue. In particular, we will explore how sex and gender can influence cardiovascular health and disease through a series of blogs and social media posts related to women’s cardiovascular health.
Stay connected with the WHRI through our facebook, Twitter @WomensHealthNU, or by signing up for our monthly newsletters!
