Description

In support of the Lundquist Lurie Cardiovascular Institute, we invite you to join us for the inaugural Torrance Memorial Women’s Heart Symposium.

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death among women, and recognizing patients at risk is the key to early interventions and decreased morbidity and mortality. We invite health care professionals to attend this one-day educational conference and learn about new scientific advances in women’s heart health, cardiovascular research and new treatment options for women with cardiovascular disease.

The symposium will feature speakers from the Lundquist Lurie Cardiovascular Institute, Cedars-Sinai Smidt Heart Institute, UCLA and UCSF:

  • Nadia Jafar, MD (LLCI) - “Women & Heart Disease: The Scope of the Problem”
  • Brenton Bauer, MD (LLCI) - “At the Heart of Cancer Care: Cardio-Oncology and Women’s Health”
  • James McKinnell, MD (LLCI) - “Cardiovascular impact of Covid Infection: the long and the short of it”
  • Noel Bairey Merz, MD (Cedars) - “Women and Coronary Microvascular Dysfunction: Update 2022”
  • Michelle Kittleson, MD (Cedars) - "HFpEF: Guide to Diagnosis and Therapies"
  • Joanna Chikwe, MD (Cedars) - “Mitral Valve Repair: State of the Art”
