The Urgency to Treat Cardiovascular Disease in Women and Children

  • This event has passed.

September 27, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is an urgent national crisis that requires renewed attention as the number of cardiovascular deaths is on the rise after decades of decline. While the broad impact of CVD is recognized as a serious problem, women with the condition often go underdiagnosed and undertreated as compared to men — and nearly half of women are unaware that CVD is their leading cause of death. And while CVD is often associated with aging, for many individuals it can begin in childhood, with lasting impacts throughout their lifespan.

Please join on Wednesday, September 27th at 1PM ET for the second expert-led webinar to discuss the impact of CVD on women and children and the policy changes that are needed to improve outcomes for patients.

The event will be streaming live on Take Health to Heart’s X (formerly known as Twitter) account @takehlth2heart.
