Women’s Cardiovascular Health Program

Mission: The mission of the Women’s Cardiovascular Health Program is to promote cardiovascular health and reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in women by providing comprehensive clinical care and fostering interdisciplinary research focused on women with cardiovascular risk factors and established cardiovascular disease. 

Through clinical collaborations within the Medical College of Wisconsin and local community, our team of cardiovascular providers works closely with primary care providers, obstetrician and gynecologists, oncologists, and endocrinologists to provide each woman with an individualized care plan that specifically addresses their cardiovascular health needs.

The four key components of the program are:

  • Providing a broad range of cardiovascular services through a multidisciplinary team using evidence based guidelines.
  • Coordinating care with other providers of women’s health services at MCW.
  • Facilitating and conducting basic science, translational, and clinical research focused on women’s cardiovascular health in collaboration with other research groups at MCW including the Women’s Health Research Program (WHRP) need link to http://obgyn.mcw.edu/research/whrp/
  • To raise awareness about the burden of CV disease in women by educating patients, healthcare providers, and the local community through lecture series and outreach efforts to local businesses and community groups
