We focus on a three pronged approach to improve the heart health of women:
CLINICAL AWARENESS - Working with your physician on risk factors such as diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and more.
RESEARCH - Focusing on physiological differences in men and women to help guide our future treatment of heart disease.
PREVENTION - Helping people to lead active lifestyles, eat healthy and stop smoking.
Women's Cardiology Clinic
Men and women experience heart disease differently. Women often have symptoms much later in life than men and seek treatment when their disease is more advanced. Because of this, Aspirus now offers a heart program to specifically care for the unique needs of women. To make an appointment, call Aspirus Cardiology Associates at 715-847-2611 or toll free 1-800-441-4013 and ask for the Women's Cardiology Clinic.
Aspirus Heart & Vascular Institute - Research & Education strives to find better ways of preventing, diagnosing and treating heart disease and educating the public with its findings. Research efforts involve medications, treatment options and new advances to improve cardiovascular care for the women in the communities we serve.
