Women's Heart Care Program

Prevention is still the best weapon in the fight against heart disease.  At Temple, we consider educating patients early in the disease process a priority in managing their care.

 

 

Lipid Center

 

The Lipid Center offers an expert, comprehensive set of preventive heart care services and physicians at one site.  The program is designed to evaluate an individual's cardiovascular risk factors, identifying targets to lower risk and to treat hypertension, lipidemia and diabetes.

 

Our lipidemiologists often manage patients with intractable heart disease, working in conjunction with a full team of specialists, including a cardiologist, endocrinologist, dietician, pharmacist, exercise specialists and nurses dedicated to heart health education and treatment.

  • Delivery of cardiovascular services to women with established cardiovascular disease and the maintenance of treatment continuity and follow-up
  • Educating patients and health care providers on the issues related to the care of women with cardiovascular disease
