Men’s Heart Health: A Spanish Language Presentation
Half the men who die of heart disease didn’t even realize they had a problem. We hear it all the time: men live shorter lives than women. And, one of the leading causes for those deaths is cardiovascular disease.
This disease hits minorities even harder. The Latino population, a very young and rapidly growing segment of our society, now numbers 22.4 million, has increased 53 percent during the last decade and is still growing. About 66 percent of Latinos in the U.S. are younger than 35 years of age. However, despite this young age, the leading cause of death among Latinos, as for all Americans, is cardiovascular disease.
Please join cardiologist Arturo Dominguez, M.D., to learn more about men’s heart health. His presentation, presented in Spanish, will be from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the cancer center conference room at INTEGRIS Southwest Medical Center, 4401 S. Western Ave.
