The Women’s Heart Initiative is a comprehensive health care program
specifically dedicated to educating and raising awareness about women’s
heart care. The goal is to empower women to Learn, Act, Live—to help
women recognize the warning signs of heart disease and encourage them to
have open discussions with their physicians about their heart care.
At the Lankenau Heart Institute, our cardiac experts understand the
unique heart health needs of women and are proud to feature a team of
eleven female cardiologists. From prevention and diagnosis to treatment
and rehabilitation, when it comes to matters of the heart, a woman’s
insight is irreplaceable.
Join the Women’s Heart Initiative on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 for an
informative evening led by our dynamic team of female cardiologists at
Main Line Health’s Lankenau Heart Institute. Our experts will be
presenting on topics such as heart rhythm disorders, menopausal effects
on the heart, nutritional approaches to heart health, management of
peripheral arterial disease, and types of screening and new technologies
available to support a heart-healthy life. Plus, you’ll have time at the
end of each session to get your individual questions answered.
Interactive with our clinical team at various educational display tables
and participate in health screenings, including blood pressure and BMI.

Carol. “It was numb. And I was completely exhausted.” Carol says she put
mind over matter and made it home. Then came the terrible migraine,
which lasted for hours. “I didn’t think it was a red flag at the time,”
she says. “I’ve had migraines before.” She ignored it and got on a train
to meet her husband downtown for a client dinner.
