HealthStreet – a community-engaged research initiative of the University of Florida Clinical and Translational Science Institute – and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Translational Research Institute are hosting the 7th national Our Community, Our Health event (OCOH) on women’s heart health. The OCOH town hall series facilitates two-way communication between researchers and community members across the country. We share ideas about priorities for health research and ways to communicate research findings and blends ideas for research from multiple stakeholders.
For this Our Community, Our Health on Women’s Heart Health, we will discuss:
- Discuss how to recognize the risk of heart disease in women with a special focus on female specific symptoms
- Discuss how to reduce risk individually and as a community
- Discuss the importance of knowing your family medical history
- Discuss how to talk to healthcare providers about heart health
