Inspire Report Details "SCAD Ladies" Patient Empowerment Story

Posted on October 14th, 2011 by

Those stories by patients compelled Mayo Clinic researchers to build upon the patient-initiated research and launch a study two months ago into the condition, known as spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD)…. The SCAD Ladies Stand Up features a foreword by Sharonne Hayes, MD, the Mayo Clinic cardiologist who is leading the project.
