Today is a big day for women living with heart disease. The Research for All Act of 2015 was introduced in Congress.
The bill shows a concerted effort to promote a greater understanding of sex difference in medicine, which may lead to a reduction of gender disparities in care.
"Historically, women with heart disease have faced misdiagnosis and inadequate treatment," says CEO Mary McGowan.
"Today the medical community has gained a better understanding of the differences between women and men with heart disease.
The Research for All Act of 2015 would help expand this knowledge base and spur the development of cardiovascular drugs, devices, and diagnostics that are safe and effective for women."
