Heart disease is the number one killer of women, regardless of race or ethnicity. But, it is also the single most preventable cause of death. The physicians at the TriHealth Heart Institute are here to help. Through HeartCaring, we encourage women to take charge of their heart health by educating women of all ages and helping link them to physicians who specialize in women’s heart care.
Committed to Education
HeartCaring is committed to educating women about their risk of heart disease through Spirit of Women events and other community outreach opportunities. In addition, we provide a professional education and designation program for physicians to help them keep gender-specific heart care top of mind when treating female patients. The physician training addresses topics such as:
- How symptoms of heart disease differ for women versus men
- How risk factors vary based on ethnicity
- Improving dialogue between female patients and doctors
