February is designated as American Heart Month, so over the next few weeks theWomen’s Health Research Institutewill join many other organizations in recognizing this important health issue. In particular, we will explore how sex and gender can influencecardiovascular 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 at @WomensHealthNU, or by signing up for our monthly newsletters!
