Heart disease is the leading killer of both men and women in the United States. However, for more than two decades, more women than men have died of heart disease annually. One of the principal challenges is that the symptoms of heart disease in women can be very different from symptoms in men.
Because of this, the Shands Jacksonville Cardiovascular Center features a program to specifically address the heart health needs of women. Led by Dr. Gladys Velarde, the Women's Cardiovascular Health Program offers specialized care based on the unique needs of women. Using the most advanced diagnostic equipment and treatments available, the University of Florida cardiologists in the Women's Cardiovascular Health Program work together to improve the quality of life for their patients.
