Cardiovascular disease is hard to digest. We all pretty much know by now the facts on women and heart disease: 1 in 3 women will die of heat failure every year; compared to 1 in 31 american women who loose their battle to breast cancer.
Join us at our next Howell Luncheon Series “Chocolate and Heart Disease: The Bitter Truth” with Dr. Pam Taud, who will be discussing cardiovascular disease in women, the risk factors for heart disease, preventive measures for heart disease and the story of chocolate. The idea that chocolate has beneficial effects and the mechanisms behind those beneficial effects derive from Dr.Taub’s own research. How better to prepare for Valentine’s Day than to hear some good news about chocolate (dark chocolate, that is)!

Meet our Speaker:
If heat disease in women is ‘bitter’, Dr. Taub might just as well have given us a smart way to deal with it! Register today as seating is almost full. We certainly do hope to see you there; and in the mean time, take a minute to meet our speaker!
