Information Line - (312) MYHEART - now available through the Center for Women's Cardiovascular Health
Cardiovascular disease is the number one health threat for women older than 25, claiming the lives of almost 500,000 women each year. In the United States, six times as many women die of cardiovascular disease than breast cancer each year. Yet health statistics show that few women recognize that cardiovascular disease is a serious threat to their health, and women are often less likely to receive appropriate care.
To combat these statistics and address women's unique cardiovascular health needs, the Center for Women's Cardiovascular Health at the Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute of Northwestern Memorial Hospital focuses on the prevention, early detection, education, and treatment of cardiovascular disease in women.
