Deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) are part of the same disease process, and represent an enormously underestimated public health problem. Up to 2 million Americans develop DVT every year, and 600,000 develop PE.  About 60,000 Americans actually die each year from PE, a rate higher than that of breast cancer and AIDS deaths combined.
What is Deep-vein thrombosis? Are pregnancy and fertility risk factors? Are women more at risk?  These and other questions were answered by medical experts from NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell at the 27th Annual Women's Health Symposium.
Myra Mahon and Joan Weill have demonstrated a long-term commitment to women's health issues and were the co-chairs of the event, which will benefit the
Iris Cantor Women's Health Center.
The Women's Health Symposium is one of the first programs in the city dedicated to women's health issues.
