Go Red for Women Symposium 2013

SYNOPSIS Singapore Heart Foundation’s Go Red for Women (GRFW) campaign is part of an international movement led by the American Heart Association & the World Heart Federation, which aims to empower women with the knowledge and tools so that they can take positive action to reduce their risks of heart disease and stroke. Heart disease and stroke remain the Number One killer of women in Singapore, yet few women are aware of this fact. Women need to know that they are as vulnerable as men, where cardiovascular disease is concerned. Risk factors for heart disease and stroke are common in women, thus early detection is possible and can be life-saving. Find out more about heart disease and early prevention by attending this important symposium. English session Speaker: Dr Goh Ping Ping, Cardiologist Topic: Heart disease in Women: How to detect and Prevent (9am-10am) 心脏病和中风是全球女性的首号杀手。这项事实是大多数女性所不知道的。 因此,新加坡心脏基金通过国际性的女性护心行动 '霓红映爱心' 呼吁所有的女性掌握自己的健康。每年,因心脏疾病和中风而死亡的女性,仍然占所有女性每年死亡人数的32%。 由于冠状动脉心脏疾病是新加坡妇女的头号杀手,若您能做一名积极的病人,很可能就挽救您的生命。 从婴幼儿期开始,直到这一辈子,富含胆固醇的斑块,便累积在心脏动脉壁,并导致心脏冠状动脉疾病和心脏病发作。当血液不再能通过因斑块狭窄的动脉,或因高血压会导致动脉破裂,心脏便会发作。 请来讲座了解更多有关心脏疾病与女性。 Mandarin session Speaker: Dr Tan Yong Seng, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (陈言森心胸外科医生) Topic: 女人与心脏病 (1pm-2pm) Zumba workout and cooking workshops will be conducted after each talk, so ladies do bring your sportswear along and join us for a fun workout!
