2017 Women and Heart Disease Forum
In June 2017, the Heart Foundation NSW convened a one-day forum to showcase emerging research and clinical advances to shine a light on the experience of heart disease among women.
This multidisciplinary Forum was an energising day that brought together experts from cardiology, obstetrics, midwifery, oncology and public health. We are thrilled to be able to share the presentations from the experts in the field and we thank them for their generosity.
