Abstract

The 2011 Update of the American Heart Association's Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Guideline for Women is designed to help women and their physicians understand cardiovascular Disease (CVD) risks and undertake practical steps that are most effective in preventing heart disease and stroke. Defining a woman's risk status and improving her adherence to preventive lifestyle behaviors and medications is the best strategy to lower the burden of CVD in women.
