Leading Cardiologists Outline Why Health Care Policy Matters to Women with Heart Disease

WomenHeart advisors Dr. Nanette Wenger and Dr. Noel Bairey Merz, along with Dr. Beverly H. Lorell, recently published an article in the American Heart Association journal, Circulation, making the case for why “recent legislation and public policy changes are particularly relevant to the cardiovascular community.” The article describes how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) promoted women’s health and reversed prior sex inequities in health care. It argues that current policy trends to undermine the ACA “will adversely affect women’s general and specific CVD health.”
