Event info

The 15th Annual Women and Ischemic Heart Disease Symposium will explore sex and gender-specific issues in ischemia with no obstructive CAD (INOCA), social media and social justice issues in women’s heart disease, exercise and management of heart disease in cardiac rehabilitation, atrial fibrillation and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) in women, and approaches to imaging including noninvasive coronary angiography (CTA) in women’s heart disease. Attendees are also invited to attend an optional open discussion with faculty at the conclusion of the conference. The purpose of this conference is to close the knowledge gaps of physicians and allied healthcare professionals regarding gender- and sex-specific differences in cardiovascular disease, the impact these differences have on treatment options, and the importance of identifying women at risk for cardiovascular disease, by utilizing the most current evidence-based treatment strategies for optimizing patient-centered care.
