WomenHeart has been conducting women and heart disease-specific campaigns for the past two years with the goal of
formulating key policy and research recommendations to advance the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart
disease in women. Drawing from our database of 20,000 members, we developed and conducted national patient education
surveys approved by the institutional review board and led telephone focus groups and patient round-tables. We obtained
valuable input from women heart patients on specific topics related to heart disease. We then held key opinion leader workshops,
in which researchers and policy experts discussed the results gathered from these surveys, focus groups, and round-tables and
formulated key recommendations. WomenHeart released the results of these studies and key opinion leader workshops at
briefings on Capitol Hill, thereby raising awareness among congressional staff. Additionally, these findings were published in
peer reviewed journals such as Elsevier’s Women’s Health Issues, consequentially underscoring the importance of these heart
health issues throughout the medical community. In this workshop, we will highlight how our topic-specific campaigns on
heart disease in women have the potential to draw the attention of policy-makers, healthcare professionals and the public. We
will focus on the following three recent topic-specific campaigns: Cholesterol and familial hypercholesterolemia; Heart failure
and women; Atrial fibrillation and stroke risk in women.
