The View from Venus

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean that we should stop thinking about hearts. Over the weekend I’m sure we all had our share of candy, chocolate and many other tasty treats in heart shaped forms. Although the human heart isn’t made of Godiva chocolate and doesn’t have a sweet message on one side of it, we still need it to live. Having a healthy heart is the key to a long and productive life. Heart disease (including heart attack and stroke) are among the top causes of death for people in the United States. Unfortunately, the statistics for women are even scarier. Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States.

This week on New Voices, we will be focusing on women’s heart health (both literal and figurative) in our new series: The View from Venus. The topics that we will cover this week include: healthy body image, healthy relationships, mental health and cardiac health.
