Webinar On-Demand: Wholehearted: Women, Menopause and Cardiovascular Risk

RECORDED THURSDAY 19th OCTOBER 2023

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in women in Europe and worldwide, yet it is still perceived as a male health problem. Compared to men, women with CVD are typically underdiagnosed and undertreated. The risk of women’s CVD increases with age, and menopause can impact several aspects of cardiovascular health including lipid profile and blood pressure.1,2

Guest speaker Dr Nina Wilson spoke on the importance of increased risk of CVD in post-menopausal women, how CVD presents and the physiological changes that these women undergo.
