Women are terrific at multitasking — juggling all the demands life can hold. The result is that your health, specifically the health of your heart, can suffer.

Making time to take care of yourself can be a challenge but one that we know you can meet. And, at Jefferson, you are not alone. Because our doctors are women, too, whose job it is to help you take care of your heart.
