The Women’s Heart Program at Weill Cornell Medicine is here to help you enjoy a longer, healthier, more active and productive life. We believe that with expert care and personal commitment, you can live the vibrant life you want — even after a heart attack or major cardiac event.
Our cardiologists are passionate about helping women achieve optimum, long-term health. We care for women who are actively preventing heart disease, have been diagnosed with heart disease and are taking steps to slow the progression, as well as survivors of major cardiac events, such as a heart attack or heart surgery.
As a patient at the Women’s Heart Program, you discuss strategies to improve and improve your overall health for many years to come. These strategies will be based on your overall health, specific conditions and lifestyle goals.
Your cardiologist will determine how often you should return to the Women’s Heart Program for checkups. By closely monitoring your heart health, you will have a better understanding of how to improve it for years to come.
Lifestyle changes: Lifestyle changes can significantly improve your health and well-being. Our cardiologists understand that every woman and life is unique, so every plan is based on your specific needs, goals and realities. Lifestyle changes may include:
Stress management: Stress has a significant impact on your heart health. We understand that every woman handles stress differently, so we provide a wide range of resources to help you develop stress management strategies that work for you.
As our patient, you will have access to the Integrative Health & Well-Being Program for mindfulness training, acupuncture, massage therapy, nutrition counseling and yoga instruction.
Emotional support: Managing heart health can be emotionally painful or difficult for many women. Many women feel excess worry, feelings of inadequacy, failure, overwhelm or fear. In addition to caring for your heart health, the cardiologists at the Women’s Heart Program will also help you connect with resources and experts to support your emotional health and well-being, including support groups and the Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Psychiatry.
