Building on the success of the April 2016 Summit, this event will bring together approximately 250 national and international experts and stakeholders to further advance women’s heart health. Together, we will transform and enhance Canadian women’s lives through research, awareness, policy development and care.

This is an accredited opportunity for knowledge exchange for a variety of stakeholders including primary care providers, cardiologists, gynecologists, pharmacists, nurses, cardiac rehabilitation providers, allied healthcare providers, researchers, policy-makers, Indigenous organizations, community partners and women with lived experience.


  • Bring together national and international leaders, knowledge-users, and women with lived experience to strengthen our capacity to develop and disseminate strategies to improve cardiovascular health among women.
  • Identify emerging areas in research and clinical practice centered upon cardiovascular conditions affecting women across their lifespan.
  • Delineate strategies for addressing the gaps in research and clinical practice for cardiovascular disease in women, improving risk stratification, diagnosis, and therapy from a sex and gender perspective.
