Event Overview
Welcome message:

This program will provide an in-depth assessment of the current status of cardiovascular disease in women, with a focus on risk assessment, diagnostic testing modalities and treatment options. The course will offer new paradigms in understanding the mechanisms of sex differences in cardiovascular disease, and provide participants with tools to translate new knowledge into sex- and gender- specific patient care. Focus areas include cardiovascular conditions that present uniquely or differently among women. Novel approaches will be presented to optimize prevention, diagnosis treatment and outcomes for conditions such as heart failure, non-obstructive coronary disease, microvascular disease, spontaneous coronary artery dissection, and stress-induced cardiomyopathy.


•    Updates on prevention and treatment of cardiovascular conditions in women

•    Expert faculty presentations focused on advancing heart health and closing gaps in quality and equity

     among women

•    Discussions on sex and gender-specific diagnosis and management of heart failure, valve disease,     

     vascular disease, and arrhythmias

•    Awareness of  new advances for practicing evidence-based medicine


This course is appropriate for, but not limited to, cardiac and vascular specialists, general internists, family practitioners, exercise and nutrition specialists, women’s health care specialists, nurses  and nurse practitioners, hospital administrators and policy makers, and anyone interested in learning about women’s cardiovascular wellness and disease.
