Dr. Martha Gulati is an internationally recognized expert on women’s heart disease. She’s Professor of Medicine and Chief of Cardiology at The University of Arizona in Phoenix, where she is creating a centre specifically for Women’s Cardiovascular Health. The best-selling co-author with Sherry Torkos of the book, Saving Women’s Hearts, Dr. Martha is also the Editor-in-Chief of the American College of Cardiology’s CardioSmart, a Scientific Advisory Board member of WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, and a board member of the American Society of Preventive Cardiology, the Phoenix American Heart Association and other notable organizations.
“The medical community in general and women specifically lack information on cardiovascular health and disease in women. This ignorance makes it less likely that women will receive guidance on:
- preventing heart disease
- preventive strategies and referral for needed diagnostic testing
- cardiac rehabilitation
“The public health cost of misdiagnosed or undiagnosed cardiac disease in women is significant.”
So if you’re lucky enough to be already signed up for our presentation here in Victoria on February 28th, you’ll not only learn a lot, but you will understand firsthand how thrilling it feels for me to have this opportunity to reunite with Dr. Martha – and right in my own backyard this time. Find out how to reserve your spot to attend Heart-Smart Women: All About Women and Heart Disease.
UPDATE FEBRUARY 28th, 2017: What a morning! Our Heart-Smart Women in Victoria was a terrific event, full with a waiting list. Dr. Martha was a huge hit (and our audience was especially intrigued by her spectacular heart stilettos!). She is so knowledgeable, skilled, funny, and wise – exactly the kind of cardiologist women want to know is in our corner, working hard to educate both women and her cardiology colleagues about women’s unique heart disease experiences. And it looks like she had a good time in our beautiful city, too, as evidenced via Twitter later that day:

CAROLYN’S NOTE: Dr. Martha Gulati graciously offered to write the foreword to my new book, “A Woman’s Guide to Living with Heart Disease“ (Johns Hopkins University Press, November 2017). I cried when I first read it – it is so beautiful! Thank you, Dr. Martha!
