Emory researcher shares insights with first lady, national leaders at White House Initiative on Women’s Health Research Roundtable
Leaders in the investment, health care, education and research spaces gathered in Atlanta for a roundtable discussion with first lady Jill Biden.
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), cardiovascular disease (CVD), and Alzheimer disease are major public health issues, particularly for women.
Carotid atherosclerosis may be associated with brain white matter hyperintensities (WMH).
His clinical studies focused largely on how to reduce the risk factors of cardiovascular disease. He also established a link between menopause and heart disease.
Childhood maltreatment has been associated with arterial stiffness.
Trajectories, Characteristics, And Associations With Subclinical Cardiovascular Disease
Self-compassion is a positive psychological construct characterized by extending compassion toward oneself, often during periods of suffering.
Midlife health may be an important determinant of cognitive and heart health later on in life.
Researchers have found limited evidence of an association between a history of childhood-onset depression and young adulthood arterial stiffness.
Sexual assault is a risk factor for poor mental health, yet its relationship to cardiovascular disease risk is not understood.
Heart disease risk in women increases leading up to menopause; early intervention is key
Menopause may augment age-dependent increases in arterial stiffness.
Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factor Burden During the Menopause Transition and Late Midlife Subclinical Vascular Disease: Does Race/Ethnicity Matter?
Emma Barinas‐Mitchell, PhD; Chunzhe Duan, PhD; Maria Brooks, PhD; Samar R. El Khoudary, PhD; Rebecca C. Thurston, PhD; Karen A. Matthews, PhD; Elizabeth A. Jackson, MD; Tené T. Lewis, PhD; Carol A. Derby, PhD Background – The extent to which cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors across the menopause explain racial/ethnic differences in subclinical vascular disease […]
Alzheimer’s disease impacts nearly 6 million Americans.
For older adults, it may seem as though the die is already cast regarding their odds of developing dementia.
Effects of more than one-year exposure to air pollution on atherosclerosis is seldom studied.
Cardiovascular fat in women at midlife: effects of race, overall adiposity, and central adiposity. The SWAN Cardiovascular Fat Study
Cardiovascular fat (CF) is associated with greater coronary heart disease (CHD) risk.
Even healthy people are at risk, but those with heart failure should take particular note of today’s news.
One in three women in the United States dies of heart disease.
Femoral Artery Atherosclerosis Is Associated With Physical Function Across the Spectrum of the Ankle Brachial Index – The San Diego Population Study
The ankle‐brachial index (ABI) is inadequate to detect early‐stage atherosclerotic disease, when interventions to prevent functional decline may be the most effective.
Increased Aortic Calcification Is Associated with Arterial Stiffness Progression in Multiethnic Middle-Aged Men
Arterial stiffness is established as an independent predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
Lipid Changes Around the Final Menstrual Period Predict Carotid Subclinical Disease in Postmenopausal Women
Atherogenic changes in lipids occur among women around the time of the natural menopause, that is, within 1 year of the final menstrual period (FMP). We investigated whether lipid changes around the FMP are related to carotid intima-media thickness, interadventitial diameter, and plaque in postmenopausal women.
