Women's Cardiovascular Medicine Clinic
The UC Davis Women's Cardiovascular Medicine Program and Clinic was established in 1994 and is one of a few dedicated women's heart programs nationally. Directed by Amparo Villablanca, the program's aims are as follows:
- Raise awareness of the impact of heart disease in women's health
- Educate health-care professionals, patients and the community
- Provide state-of-the-art cardiac services for women (who may require a different diagnostic and treatment approach than men) in an innovative, interdisciplinary, comprehensive, supportive and cost-effective setting
- Support gender-specific research involving women who have been traditionally under-represented in medical research studies
Clinic staff and physicians
A major strength of the Women's Cardiovascular Medicine Program is the dedication and commitment of its staff to improving women's health. The program is composed primarily of female faculty, academic physicians and experienced nurse specialists. Clinical expertise among the program's health-care providers is extensive and encompasses cardiovascular disease, community medicine, international health, geriatrics, ethics, psychiatry, preventive and emergency medicine, gynecology, general internal medicine and primary care.
