Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center
The Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center at the Smidt Heart Institute is playing a leading role in identifying female-pattern heart disease, developing new diagnostic tools and advancing specialized care for women. Although heart disease kills more women than men every year, the treatment of women's heart disease was based—until recently—on medical research performed on men.
The center is working to correct these gender inequalities and to educate women on how to recognize female-pattern heart disease symptoms. The center provides convenient access to all of Cedars-Sinai's diagnostic and treatment resources for heart disease, and is designed to help women reduce their chances of heart disease through a preventive approach, including state-of-the-art screening and testing.
