Date:11/21/2011

WHAT:

The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) will sponsor the Women's Heart Health Summit: "In Pursuit of Excellence: Improving Cardiovascular Outcomes in Women." The goal of the meeting is to examine current prevention, treatment, and key research issues to collectively identify opportunities and recommendations that will lead to improved cardiovascular outcomes in women. The panel will explore the following issues:

  • Is there gender bias in diagnoses?
  • Are there physiological factors at play?
  • Why do women often not fare as well as men given the same treatments and therapies?
  • What do women need to know to monitor their own health effectively?

WHEN:
11:00 AM 2:00 PM
Friday, December 9, 2011

WHERE:
The Princeton Club
15 West 43rd Street
New York, NY

WHO:

The Summit will feature a keynote address on the current state of heart disease in women by Cindy L. Grines, MD, Vice President of Academic and Clinical Affairs of the Heart and Vascular Institute at the Detroit Medical Center.

Led by Summit Chair, Roxana Mehran, MD, the Summit will bring together top national experts in research, academia, and health policy to examine the importance of gender in cardiovascular disease research:

WHY:

Research has demonstrated that there are significant disparities in heart health between men and women. Too few people realize the staggering toll cardiovascular disease has on women. Over the past 40 years, there has been a marked reduction in U.S. heart disease deaths in men, but reductions in women have continued to lag behind. More needs to be done to provide women with the knowledge and tools they need to take positive action to reduce their risk of heart disease, as well as to drive the discovery and investigation of new and innovative therapies for women.
