From Prevention to Intervention

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one cause of death in women in the United States and the developed world. Research has identified risk factors specific to women such as adverse pregnancy outcomes, or conditions more prominent in women such as rheumatologic or mental health disorders. While public health initiatives have increased awareness in these areas, there is still confusion among health care clinicians about risk assessment and best practice with regards to management of women with heart disease. A review of the most current evidence-based guidelines for the prevention of heart disease in women with a focus on the management of diseases as catered to the unique pathophysiology of women, will provide medical practitioners with a clear understanding of the best practice to ensure women are not just treated as “little men”.
This is the 2nd Annual Women’s Heart & Vascular Symposium hosted by Dignity Health’s Women’s Heart Health Program in Arizona through CommonSpirit Health’s initiative across the United States to improve heart health in women. We intend to provide attendees with updates on the most current issues concerning CVD in women. This full day virtual symposium is for all healthcare clinicians caring for women today including cardiologist, cardiothoracic surgeons, obstetricians/gynecologists, emergency medicine, internal medicine, family medicine, endocrinologists, oncologists, rheumatologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, residents, fellows, and medical students. It will focus on the continuum of care from prevention to early diagnosis and treatment strategies for heart disease in women.
