Redesigned the Heartbeat to Heartbeat 2005 Documentary subpage and included the video that had been offline for a while. Heartbeat to Heartbeat is an urgent wake-up call for women to improve their cardiovascular health. The documentary reveals useful information on risk factors, symptoms and prevention of heart disease, while exploring the emotional impact of the number-one killer of women in the United States. HEARTBEAT also addresses the need for women to ask their physicians questions and to reach out for support. Interviews include heart disease advocate Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess) and Kathy Kastan, president of WomenHeart.
Actor Lucy Lawless, star of the television series, Xena: Warrior Princess, who encourages women to take charge of their well-being: “Being a warrior goes into all aspects of our life, especially women’s health…. We’re all trying to do everything all the time. And I think we have to take a really strong focus on putting our health first, in every aspect—physical health, heart health, mental, emotional health.”
As the documentary underscores, diagnosis and treatment are critical to saving—and reclaiming—one’s life.
Heartbeat to Heartbeat: Women and Heart Disease is a production of Creative Expansions, Inc.
