Seminar Title

  • Female-Specific Risk Factors that Influence Women’s Cardiovascular Risk across the Lifespan.

Objectives

  1. To discuss female specific factors — such as pre-eclampsia and early menopause — that are “risk-enhancers” that increase CVD risk in women and how to incorporate these factors into shared-decision making with patients about preventive therapies.
  2. To review the prognostic impact of sub clinical atherosclerosis and non-obstructive coronary artery disease on women’s future ASCVD risk and opportunities to enhance prevention.
  3. To review disparities in enrollment of women patients into cardiovascular clinical trials and discuss suggestions for improvement in this area.

This session will be open to clinicians, residents, students and all others. It will be hosted virtually via Microsoft Teams. For access to the Teams feed, please email Veronica Nundahl.
