Women & Heart Disease by Nenette Kass Wenger and Peter Collins (Eds)
"My 27 year nursing career has centered around heart disease. In 1997, I began my doctoral study focusing on heart disease in older women. During this intense study, I found that women are a vulnerable population that has been understudied and subsequently, undertreated. Thus, women have poorer health outcomes than men. This book is an excellent reference discussing cardiac issues from women's perspectives. I believe this text will be an asset to any person examining the biological, sociological, or psychological factors associated with cardiovascular disease in women."
