Sixth Annual Women’s Heart Symposium

February 22, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

icUNC School of Medicine will host the sixth annual Women’s Heart Symposium. This free event provides knowledge and resources designed to improve women’s cardiovascular health outcomes. In North Carolina, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among women, with heart disease and stroke accounting for 28% of deaths. Dr. Paula Miller, director of SOM’s Women’s Heart Program, sees education as the key to reversing this trend and as the core component of the Women’s Heart Symposium. Participants learn about the connection between anxiety and heart disease and walk away with tools for relaxation. They learn the importance of core strength and leave with at-home strengthening exercises. They hear from experts about the connection between nutrition and heart health, receiving recipes they can easily cook at home while also enjoying the symposium’s heart healthy lunch and beverage options.

This event is free to all. Registration required by Feb. 10.
