Cardiovascular disease, including stroke, is the #1 cause of death
among American women. It currently claims nearly 500,000 women’s lives
each year. That’s more than the next seven causes of death combined, and
nearly twice as many as all forms of cancer combined.
The Women’s Cardiac Risk Clinic (WCRC), located on the campus
of St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana at 106th and North Meridian, is a
cardiac wellness prevention clinic run by a team of women cardiologists
with the goal of preventing the development of heart disease in women.
For more information on a Women’s Heart Assessment, please call
1-800-732-1484 or (317) 338-6666 and ask for extension WCRC.
