New York, NY

Women and Cardiovascular Disease: Why Should it Matter More?

The Lancet Commission Educational Symposium

During this one-day symposium, healthcare clinicians will explore strategies to tackle inequities in diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of heart disease in women; to advance innovative solutions for early detection and targeted management; to unravel the underlying biological mechanisms that contribute to sex-specific differences in outcomes, and to finally decrease the global CVD burden in women.

Led by world-renowned experts, this symposium will inform about sex- and gender-based disparities in treatment and diagnosis of CVD in women, with a special focus on the most vulnerable populations, and how to address these in daily clinical practice.
