Women's Heart Health

Heart Disease is Very Much a Woman’s Disease

Heart disease is gender-blind, affecting women and men at equal rates. Yet, while it’s the leading cause of death for both sexes in the U.S., the reasons why women get it—and what they experience—may be very different from men. Understanding those differences is essential in preventing heart-related illness. 

Virtua women’s cardiologists partner with you to determine the lifestyle factors, medical issues, and family history that may be affecting your heart, and develop treatment plans to support your needs.
