A Dedicated Team - Bringing Innovation to Women’s Heart Program

Our cardiovascular group has a strong focus on improving outcomes for women with heart disease. Piedmont Heart Institute has established a team of women’s heart experts who care for women with heart conditions and issues in a more holistic way.

Our team teaches women about awareness of heart disease risks through our risk screening and makes sure that our patients have access to support services to help them through diagnosis and treatment – and on to improved heart health.

Education is the Key to Success

With an emphasis on education and helping others, our Women’s Heart Program brings in other Piedmont specialists with expertise in the areas that affect heart health. Including nutritionists or yoga experts, our patients can learn the importance of diet and exercise with heart health – and how to incorporate good choices into everyday life – with small changes that have a big impact on wellness.
