Hi, and thank you for joining us at EmpowHER – the home of women’s health online. I am joined right now by Dr. Lishan Aklog; he is the Chairman of EmpowHER’s Medical Advisory Board. He is the Director and Chief of Cardiovascular Surgery at the Heart and Lung Institute of St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona and, you know, Dr. Aklog has one of the most amazing stories and so, I wanted to find an opportunity where we just introduced him. He is a major player here on the site. Hey, Dr. Aklog!

Dr. Lishan Aklog:
Hi Todd.

Todd Hartley:
You know, I have gone over your bio so many times and I just find you just fascinating. Let’s see, born in Ethiopia, one of the world’s poorest nations, came to the U.S. at, what 13?

Dr. Lishan Aklog:

We value and respect our HERWriters' experiences, but everyone is different. Many of our writers are speaking from personal experience, and what's worked for them may not work for you. Their articles are not a substitute for medical advice, although we hope you can gain knowledge from their insight.
