Women's Heart, Brain and Vascular Health: We Know the Gaps; How Will We Close Them?

Proudly hosted by the University of Ottawa Heart Institute's Canadian Women's Heart Health Centre, Heart & Stroke, the University of British ColumbiaCentre for Cardiovascular Innovation and the Leslie Diamond Women's Heart Health Clinic, the Canadian Women’s Heart Health Summit is the only event of its kind and has become the national reference point for health professionals seeking up-to-date knowledge of women’s heart, brain and vascular health.

Building on the success of the previous three Summits, we have assembled national and international experts and stakeholders to further advance women’s heart, brain, and vascular health. Together, we will transform and enhance Canadian women’s lives through research, awareness, policy development, and care.

This is an accredited opportunity for knowledge exchange for a variety of stakeholders including primary care providers, cardiologists, neurologists, gynecologists, pharmacists, nurses, cardiac rehabilitation providers, allied healthcare providers, researchers, policy-makers, community partners, and women with lived experience.

Summit Objectives

  1. Bring together key stakeholders to network and strengthen our capacity to develop and disseminate strategies to improve heart, brain, and vascular health among women.
  2. Identify emerging areas, gaps and health disparities in research and clinical practice in heart, brain, and vascular conditions affecting women across their lifespan.
  3. Delineate equity-promoting strategies and action plans for facilitating the uptake of evidence in research and clinical practice for heart, brain, and vascular disease in women.
