The New Mid is a frank, funny look at women in mid-life and their day-to day-struggles and successes, as well as the big stuff - questions about meaning, fulfillment and happiness. It’s a place where women in their 40’s and up are breaking societal boundaries and expectations, while still dealing with real life issues such as caring for aging parents or restarting their careers.  You’ll get real talk with nothing held back about the topics you care about, with experts weighing in on health, sex, finances, relationships and everything in between.

The #1 Killer of Women is Heart Attacks and Stroke. February is the American Heart Association Month so I reached out to my friend Beth Greve who is a stroker survivor and Dr. Magliato who is one of the first cardiac heart surgeons and both are Ambassadors for AHA to answer many of the questions we have when it comes to heart disease. Dr. Magliato also explains the new found evidence of how COVID19 is affecting our heart health.

- There are 2 Risk Factors we can do Nothing about. There are several Risk Factors we can Control to prevent a Heart Attack.
- Heart Disease is 80% preventable.
- AHA recommends to exercise 4 days a week or 150 minutes a week.
