Program

For nearly 30 years, heart disease has killed more women than men in the United States. Yet women continue to face lower rates of diagnosis, treatment, and survival. Many other diseases are disproportionately prevalent among women and may affect them differently, requiring gender-specific approaches to diagnosis and treatment. The disparities in care might have developed unintentionally, but the time has come to narrow them deliberately. Join us for a discussion of women's health, heart health, and the potential effects of gender on health.

    I would love to attend this event, especially because of my terrible experience with Crestor, but it is closed. I may just go and see if any space is available. If anyone can't attend, please let me know, so I can take your place.

    Hoping to attend for the first time, and get a better understanding of heart health for my ongoing professional education.

    Welcome, Dinah! Some of us are thinking about getting together for a bite or coffee after... we will decide then and where...perhaps we can have a discussion on what we learned.

    I thought it might be easier to get a bite to eat AFTER the event so we wouldn't be rushed. Didn't have a place in mind. But one suggestion:
    Coogie's Cafe
    2906 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90404
    Phone:(310)[masked]
    Free parking

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
