Registration for our webinar on Women and Cardiovascular Disease is now open, March 6

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death globally, affecting both men and women. However, women’s cardiovascular health is nuanced and distinctive. Traditionally considered a “man’s disease,” cardiovascular disease manifests differently in women, leading to delayed diagnosis and inadequate prevention strategies.

Risk factors, including lipid and lipoprotein levels, change during the life course with sex-specific changes in pregnancy and menopause.

We invite you to join our webinar that aims to unravel the complexities surrounding women’s cardiovascular health, exploring the specific risk factors, symptoms, and prevention strategies tailored to the female population.

Our distinguished panel of experts will guide us through a comprehensive examination of the multifaceted factors contributing to the cardiovascular health of women. From hormonal influences to lifestyle choices, and socioeconomic determinants to disparities in healthcare access.

Discover valuable insights and practical knowledge that can positively impact women’s cardiovascular well-being. Register now:
