The Urgency to Treat Cardiovascular Disease in Women and Children
Wednesday, September 27, 2023
1pm – 2pm EST
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 us on Wednesday, September 27th at 1PM ET for our 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.
Cardiovascular disease is an urgent national crisis that requires renewed attention. After a decades-long decline, the number of cardiovascular deaths is on the rise again. As organizations working to advance cardiovascular health and the interests of medically underserved communities, the Foundation of the National Lipid Association and the National Medical Association launched the Take Health to Heart initiative to drive public policy change to enable better access to optimal care and treatment, advance a more equitable healthcare system, and, ultimately, stop the rise in cardiovascular deaths.
