This year’s theme, State of the Heart, focuses on women’s heart health across the lifespan.
Heart disease is the leading cause of premature death for women in Canada. Five times as many women die from heart disease as breast cancer. Even today, two-thirds of clinical research trials don’t include equal representation of women.
National and international delegates and women with lived experience will converge in Ottawa to brainstorm strategies to eradicate the gap in women’s heart health, showcase emerging research - and hear the innovations in science, prevention, treatment and recovery.
Summit delegates return home armed with new tools and knowledge that will help reduce the impact of heart disease on women.
