Another brief update as I obsess on curling. We are talking women's heart health tomorrow with Dr. Eugenia Gianos, the co-clinical director of the Center for Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease at NYU Langone Health.  Usually when I talk chest pain its GERD, but not in this segment!  Heart questions? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

We will have a super combo Ask Doctor Ira and Gastroenterology Update at 8:30 and 9:30 AM.
