Thanks to the Leslie Diamond Women’s Heart Health Clinic at VGH, women with cardiovascular disease can enjoy better quality of life. In 2009, the Clinic opened its doors with the goal to prevent and stop the progression of heart disease in women through rehab treatment and education.
More than 300 women have benefitted from the Clinic’s top specialists and services, led by Dr. Tara Sedlak, Canada’s only certified women’s heart health cardiologist.
The Clinic is hoping to expand its offerings to support a greater vision of women’s health – including new staff for enhanced patient care and increased research – so as many women as possible can live well and live long.
We are grateful to Leslie Diamond whose generous contribution helped establish the first women’s heart health clinic in Western Canada. Thanks to Merck, AstraZeneca and the Shoppers Drug Mart Tree of Life Campaign and other donors – more women can benefit.
“Bringing together prevention, clinic services, education and research will help us become strong practitioners in these areas, and provide a women-centred approach to heart health.”
– Dr. Tara Sedlak, Cardiologist, Leslie Diamond Women’s Heart Health Clinic
