Jan 26, 2019 | Houston, Texas
Texas Heart Institute (THI) Women’s Center Annual Women’s Heart & Vascular Symposium is organized by Texas Heart Institute (THI) Women’s Center and will be held on Jan 26, 2019 at Denton A. Cooley Auditorium At The Texas Heart Institute, Houston, Texas, United States of America. Course Description: The goal of this symposium is to educate the primary care physicians for women; obstetricians & gynecologists, internal medicine, family practice, endocrinologists, and nurse practitioners about prevention, early diagnosis and treatment strategies for heart disease in women. Heart and vascular disease remains the leading contributor to morbidity and mortality among both women and men. While the decrease in mortality among women is well documented, the decline still lags behind that of men, with an alarming tendency towards an increase mortality rate among younger women. Despite statistics that show disease develops on average 7–10 years later in women compared with men, adverse trends in many risk factors among women are of growing concern. Greater life expectancy for women, together with improvements in primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular, will lead to a larger proportion of women living with disease. Substantial sex differences in the burden of different manifestations of cardiovascular disease, including coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke, heart failure, and peripheral artery disease, are widely recognized and must be addressed as new research and best practices are developed. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
