Cardiometabolic health is a critical concern for women across the globe. The underrepresentation of women in cardiometabolic research has lead to a gap in our understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of the female cardiovascular system. Recent studies have aimed to close this gap and educate women on sex specific cardiovascular risks and the importance of diet and lifestyle. In this webinar, Dr. Felice Gersh, M.D., discusses the significance of estrogen in cardiometabolic health and explores how dietary, lifestyle and nutritional supplements can support the vascular system in peri- and postmenopausal women.*
