Petronela Sandulache is set to unravel the silent epidemic lurking within our society: heart disease, the leading cause of death in women, surpassing all cancers combined. Her talk will challenge the conventional wisdom of “bikini-medicine,” urging us to look beyond reproductive health and delve into the critical realm of heart health. With a passionate plea for awareness, Petronela Sandulache will explore the unique symptoms of heart disease in women, often camouflaged or underdiagnosed, and shed light on the historical biases in medical research that have perpetuated a dangerous gender gap in understanding women’s heart health. Petronela Sandulache’s talk is more than a presentation – it’s a personal plea to each of us to take proactive steps in our health journey to prevent unneccessary loss.

Petronela Sandulache’s journey to the TEDxFreiburg stage was shaped by a deeply personal experience – a tragic loss that ignited a passion for women’s health advocacy. Inspired by the insights of Prof. Alyson McGregor, Petronela Sandulache found solace and purpose in her quest to raise awareness about the unique health needs of women. She is a Health Equity Advocate and CorDiFio’s founder – an impact-driven non-profit organization – to raise awareness of misdiagnosis through education while empowering individuals with their health, with the ultimate vision that a life can be saved with knowledge. One heart at a time!
