Thank you for visiting the Center for Women's Heart & Vascular Health
I am honored to be the Center's Director. Our goal is to have a significant impact on the suffering and escalating costs associated with heart disease in women. We do this for the 43 million American and 600,000 Texas women living with some form of cardiovascular disease, and for the families and communities who depend on them.
A tall order? Yes, but we're uniquely situated to fill it.
THI is a leading cardiovascular research and education center with a long history of life-saving discoveries. Our physician scientists are fully committed to making a difference.
Because our ground-breaking research programs are physician led, we can identify critical medical issues and translate discoveries into improved treatments much more quickly. In the case of better women's heart health, there's no time to waste.
Houston's population is among the most ethnically diverse, obese, and under-insured in the US, so it is particularly vulnerable to heart and vascular diseases. We are doing research and developing programs that will be scalable and replicable throughout the region and will inform research and treatment throughout the world.
