Book DescriptionThis important and informative work addresses the causes behind cardiovascular health disparities between black women and their white counterparts including poor diet, inadequate access to quality healthcare, and infrequent visits to the physician. More than simply diagnosing the problem, however, this guide empowers black women to take the necessary steps toward lowering their risk of heart attack and stroke, enables them to work more effectively with health care professionals, and informs them about risk factors and how to negotiate the health care system. A comprehensive list of resources is also provided.
