Lankenau Heart Institute cardiologist Dr. Sandra Abramson, this year's American Heart Association - Philadelphia's Go Red for Women Champion, talked to Stephanie Stahl of CBS Philly about women and heart disease in honor of Wear Red Day yesterday.

From CBS Philly:

Dr. Sandra Abramson, director of cardiovascular imaging, she said there are some common misconceptions out there.

“It was always thought heart disease in women isn’t as important as heart disease in men.”

Abramson, the go red for women champion, says while women have been making some progress, women still aren’t treated fairly.

“Women get less stress tests, women get less CATs, women get less interventions.”
