Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Health Program

The UCLA Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Health Program is a comprehensive cardiovascular program committed to providing education for women with, or at risk for heart disease as well as conducting state of the art scientific research aimed at improving women's heart health. We are committed to heart disease, the number one cause of death in US women, and our research is aimed at identifying unique and important features of heart disease in women.

Our program offers community education through a series of public forums including our 'Lets Talk Women's Health' series, 'Taste of Health' and Teen Heart Health events. 

Please join us in celebrating women's health,  and view a special message from Ms. Barbra Streisand for the Women's Cardiovascular Center.
