Spread the Word is an initiative to raise awareness about the challenges of determining whether or not a woman’s symptoms may be due to coronary artery disease (CAD). Our mission is to encourage and empower women to know more about CAD and to increase awareness about the various testing options for women. By listening to our bodies and knowing our testing options, we can take an active role in the care we receive.
Identifying the signs and symptoms of CAD in women can be difficult. Our bodies are different. We often experience less obvious and less typical symptoms than men. With CAD, early diagnosis and medical treatment can save lives — our own and the lives of the women we love.
Our care plan should be as unique as we are. So talk about your symptoms, know your testing options, and go Spread the Word — because every woman deserves the right care.
