    Below is the latest bi-weekly email regarding the happenings at WIN. This email serves to provide you with updated information on events, news and opportunities through WIN, and I hope you will find it helpful.

    • Breaking News - The SCAI WIN supported OBGYN patient screening project is in the news again. This time in connection to new information around heart disease and pregnancy complications. First, The Preeclampsia is Foundation is helping SCAI spread the word about the connection between pregnancy and heart health. This is in addition to SCAI’s own efforts in this area through its patient education website, SecondsCount.org.  Also this week, MedPage Today published an article in response to a recent Circulation study on the link between pregnancy complications and chronic heart disease risk, featuring an interview with SCAI WIN Chair Roxana Mehran, MD, FSCAI. SCAI WIN looks forward to launching the 2nd phase of its OBGYN patient screening study later this year, furthering awareness and research on this important subject matter.
    • Upcoming Events - If you plan to attend CRT in Washington, DC this weekend, do not miss the Women & Heart Disease luncheon symposium on Sunday, February 24th from 11:45am-2:00pm. This year’s program, co-sponsored by SCAI WIN, features a stellar faculty, including WIN Chairs Roxana Mehran, MD, FSCAI and Alaide Chieffo, MD, FSCAI. To learn more, click HERE.
