WomenHeart Wenger Award to Abbott Vascular

Last Updated on Tuesday, April 30, 2013

WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease hosted the Wenger Awards in Washington, DC, on April 8 in recognition of those who have set a precedent in prevention, treatment and care of heart disease in women.

Abbott Vascular received the award for Excellence in Corporate Leadership for launching the Women's Heart Health Initiative (WHHI). In collaboration with the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI)-Women in Innovations (WIN) initiative, Abbott developed a unique program to encourage and to assist OB/GYN clinicians in screening their patients for cardiovascular disease risk factors to increase the chances of early detection of heart disease, particularly in women with a history of pregnancy complications.

The significance of this initiative was confirmed in 2011 when the American Heart Association added new recommendations to its guidelines regarding the importance of screening women for a history of pregnancy complications such as gestational diabetes and preeclampsia.
