Abstract

Missing in Action: Physical Activity for Women with Heart Disease

Heart disease is the number one killer of women; yet, a large portion of research is focused on intervening in women with heart disease rather than prevention of heart disease. Primary prevention is the focus on minimizing modifiable cardiac risk factors (physical inactivity, smoking, hypertension, obesity, and hypercholesterolemia) to prevent the coronary heart disease (CHD) while secondary prevention focuses on minimizing modifiable cardiac risk factors to halt, delay, or reverse the disease process.
