The Women's Heart Health Initiative announces creation of new women's cardiology research fellowship
Date:12/22/2008

New York, NY December 22, 2008 The Women's Heart Health Initiative at the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) will announce the creation of a new fellowship dedicated to gender-specific research that will improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease in women. The announcement will take place during a February luncheon featuring Mehmet C. Oz, MD.

"Women face unique challenges to successful diagnosis and treatment of heart disease because they develop different forms of the disease than men," said Alexandra J. Lansky, MD, Director of the Women's Heart Health Initiative, "Recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease have historically been based on studies conducted primarily in middle-aged men. Most current trials continue to enroll too few women to determine if tests and treatments work equally well in both sexes. By establishing a research fellowship dedicated to gender-specific research, the Women's Heart Health Initiative hopes to identify treatments and preventive strategies that are effective in women and improve the outcomes and quality of life of women with or at risk for heart disease."

The Art of Living Well: A Woman's Guide to Preventing Heart Disease will take place on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at Tavern on the Green in New York City. Dr. Mehmet C. Oz, one of America's leading physicians, will be the Keynote Speaker and lead this meaningful, in-depth discussion.
