The sad reality of women’s heart disease hits home


My least favourite thing: out of over 700 scientific papers presented at this conference, I could count on one hand those that focused even remotely on women’s heart disease. My question is: why?...Mayo Clinic cardiologist Dr. Sharonne Hayes, director of the Mayo Women’s Heart Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, explains this dilemma: “Research takes time to trickle down to the bedside or patient care. The research community is good at discovering new things, but slow in putting them into practice.”
