Conference Overview

The Scripps Arrhythmias and Cardiomyopathy in Women Symposium is designed to increase competence regarding the recognition and management of cardiovascular disease in women. The symposium will explore new and emerging risk factors for women’s heart disease while highlighting areas of discrepancy in care management related to gender. Expert faculty will cover a wide range of topics including the diagnosis, management, and state-of-the-art treatment for women afflicted with heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias, and cardiomyopathies. The goal of the activity is to improve outcomes for women with cardiovascular disease and arrhythmias as well as provide educational interventions for both primary and secondary prevention.
