About Jessica M. Peña, M.D.
I am a cardiologist specializing in the prevention and treatment of heart and vascular disease and management of cardiac risk factors. As a member of the multidisciplinary team at HeartHealth, I work with patients to identify their risk factors for heart disease and develop personalized strategies for lowering their risk of developing heart disease. I have a particular clinical interest in heart disease in women and our comprehensive evaluation at HeartHealth takes into account the important social and biological differences between women and men that contribute to the development of heart disease.
