Danielle Heuseveldt, RD is our guest host on Be Well for this episode, joined by Dr. Carmel O'Donnell, the leader of the women’s health clinical group at Crossover. In this realm, women and men are treated very differently and for a good reason (ummm, biology). But, beyond the reproductive differences, females have very different medical needs that (good) doctors can and should address.
Carmel shares her experiences of misdiagnosis, surprising symptom differences between men and women (like, heart disease), and the importance of women prioritizing their health. Tune in to learn how to stay informed and on top of your own health (“know your numbers”—don’t worry, she spells it all out for you), and how to be tenacious in advocating for yourself when you’re feeling misheard (ICYMI...check out episode 13 with Dr. Yvonne Robinson-Hawkins to become a CEO of your health).
Danielle also gets the 411 on Carmel’s favorite podcast, how it feeds her guilty pleasure, and how she stays active. If you are a woman, or know someone who is, this podcast is for you.
