A Major Opportunity for Ob/Gyns: Improving Awareness of CardioVascular Disease Among Women
Mary L. Rosser, MD, PhD1 and Allison Brusati, MD2 - Depts of 1Ob/Gyn & Women’s Health and 2Internal Medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, NY
(Presented at the American Heart Association's Annual Meeting, Dallas, Texas, November 2013)
"We believe these findings reveal a significant opportunity to broaden the definition and scope of the Ob/Gyn. Our study demonstrates that the population of women that relies on Ob/Gyns for primary care has the least awareness (young, non-white, lower income and education level) of heart disease and is receiving less education about heart health from their Ob/Gyn.
Not only could the Ob/Gyn make an impact on the epidemic of cardiovascular disease in women, but on other chronic diseases as well. Early and frequent education for prevention and early intervention is crucial."
