Women and Heart Disease Forum 2019
2019 Women and Heart Disease Forum in Sydney on 19 June, presented by National Heart Foundation in collaboration with The George Institute for Global Health.
Heart disease is a leading killer of Australian women, but it continues to be under-recognised, under-researched, and under-treated.
It can be an invisible killer – often going unnoticed and not openly talked about. In Australia, heart disease continues to take the lives of 22 women every day – with nearly three times as many women dying from heart disease as from breast cancer.
The 2019 Women and Heart Disease Forum will bring together leaders in research and health care as well as women directly impacted by heart disease. Find out the latest advances in prevention, treatment, and management of heart disease among women from Australia’s leading clinicians and researchers including Professor Robyn Norton AO, Dr Clare Arnott, Prof John Beltrame AM, Dr Will Parsonage, Louise Cullen, and Clara Chow.
