“Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and stroke affect women differently across race and ethnicity. Cultural, educational, and economic disparities further complicate prevention efforts such as screening and risk factor management, diagnosis and treatment selection, and patient compliance and cooperation. Our Special Journal Section features relevant women focused research and offers current insights for all medical professionals caring for women today” — Dr. Stephanie Coulter, Section Editor
