Take Heart: Women’s Cardiac Care

Heart Risk Assessments for Women

Once every second, a woman dies from heart disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in America, claiming the lives of one in three women every year. Most women are at risk, but too few realize it. To prevent heart problems or begin cardiovascular disease treatment as early as possible, Cardiovascular Specialists of Lawrence is working to change all that with Take Heart: Women’s Cardiac Care assessments.

Take Heart includes three affordable heart risk assessment packages each tailored specifically for women. Each assessment includes lab work and body measurements to help identify your individual risk factors.

After your assessment, we will send a report to your primary care provider, so ask your provider which heart risk assessment package is right for you.
