COURSE DESCRIPTION
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in the US and accounts for more deaths each year than all of the other causes combined. In women of racial or ethnic minority the rates of death are even higher. One in three women will die of some form of heart or vascular disease. However, only one-third of women are aware of this statistic and only half would call 911 if they had symptoms of heart attack. Compared to men, women are less likely to receive standard of care of treatment for chest pain, less likely to be referred to a cardiologist, and less likely to be admitted to the hospital. It is our mission to educate healthcare providers about the risk of heart disease in women and empower them to be advocates for women's cardiovascular health.

This educational symposium will define risk factors for cardiovascular disease in women and how they differ from men, the impact of cardiovascular disease in women worldwide, and gender-specific treatments. Discussions will include pathophysiology of pregnancy related complications, the risks and benefits of hormone therapy, the benefits of biventricular therapy in women and heart failure management, and advances in management of dyslipidemia, atrial fibrillation and coronary microvascular dysfunction. State of the art therapies for structural heart disease, with an emphasis on outcomes in women, will be discussed.

The objective of this symposium is to educate healthcare providers on gender-appropriate approaches in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of women with a broad range of cardiovascular diseases.
