Cardiologist Dr. Daniel van Buren returns for his seventh visit to help educate the community about heart disease. He has mentioned in past presentations the uniqueness of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) as it is diagnosed in women. After the age of 63, one in three women will develop some form of cardiovascular disease. In this session he will discuss the unique clinical features of heart disease in women: the epidemiology, prognosis and treatment. He will also explore the ongoing myths about heart disease in women and how these affect the use of certain diagnostic tests and procedures.

Cathi DiCocco, a popular local chef, returns to delight us with her culinary expertise. She will discuss how to build flavor and nutrition into one-pot meals. Learn how to combine beans, vegetables and grains into dishes that can be frozen for future use, and how to “smart shop” for convenience.
