Let's Talk - About Past Events

Our UCLA Women’s Cardiovascular Center is committed to tackling the number one killer of women - heart disease! Through our unique programs dedicated to prevention, treatment, and management of cardiovascular disease, we share information and resources for better, heart health. 

The Women’s Cardiovascular Annual Event, 'Let's Talk; Heart, Body and Soul' was first launched on October 14, 2017, at UCLA's CNSI Reception Center. Our unique 'Heart Health & Mindful Living' event was unlike any we've presented before! A world of discovery unfolded as UCLA Women's Cardiovascular Health Doctors presented a day packed with information from a handful of experts, focused on heart health, preventative measures, stress reduction, mindful living and more! 

Because women often present with different symptoms than men, the Center takes a specialized approach to caring for women with heart disease, offering a comprehensive array of cardiovascular healthcare services designed specifically for women, available to you in a single location.

Since 2017, The Women's Cardiovascular Center continues to present 'Let's Talk Women's Heart Health' programs with a contemporary theme and updated information and research. With the exception of our virtual event during the covid pandemic, we've continued our outreach live at event locations at UCLA.
