February is American Heart Month and how menopause affects the heart will be discussed by Cuyuna Regional Medical Center obstetrician/gynecologist Rachel Cady, M.D., in a virtual presentation Thursday, Feb. 18.

Go here at 6 p.m. to view the presentation.

While menopause does not cause heart disease, studies have shown post-menopausal women are at a great risk for cardiovascular disease.

Cady will explain how a decline in estrogen may be a factor in heart disease increase among post-menopausal women.
