Thank you to all who attended our recent edition of the NIPC Series: Women’s Heart Health on International Women’s Day, 8th March. Each year, heart disease and related risk factors are missed in women and contribute to the deaths of 5,000 Irish women annually.
We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to distinguished speakers Prof Roxana Mehran, Prof Fionnuala McAuliffe, Prof Fidelma Dunne and our chair for the evening, Prof Molly Byrne. We would also like to thank our sponsors Novo Nordisk, and you, the audience for making this such an engaging and interactive session.
Our expert panelists shared their insights on key challenges specific to women’s heart health, including challenges and opportunities in cardiovascular health, gestational diabetes and obesity.
