CorDiFio: a digital platform for early detection of heart disease in women
CorDiFio in Italian means “Heart of Fio,” and Fio was the name of founder’s mom who lost her life because of a misdiagnosis. This could have been easily avoided had she known that:
- #1 killer of women more than all cancers combined is heart disease.
- 50% of women following a heart attack get misdiagnosed.
- Women are 7 times more likely than men to be misdiagnosed.
CorDiFio is an awareness raising, early-detection and preventative digital platform for heart disease in women. The goal is to empower women & doctors in detecting heart disease in a timely manner. In cardiology, Time is Muscle.
At CorDiFio they are determined to ensure that no more women lose their lives when something can be done about it. For 80% of heart diseases and stroke are preventable if they are caught in time. Come learn about the platform, talk to the women you love, and let’s make their hearts beat longer!
