A limited-edition podcast series on women and cardiovascular health
Women and cardiovascular health is a topic close to our hearts and at the centre of the activities of many of our Members. This year, our podcast Conversations from the Heart will take a deep dive into gender equity as a way of improving heart health for everyone. To mark International Women's Day 2022, we are kicking off with women in cardiology: the role they play in the workforce, in patient-physician relationships and in changing the culture of cardiology.
We speak with two young cardiologists from Sri Lanka and Iraq, who are at the forefront of promoting gender equity and who are also WHF’s Emerging Leaders. Aaysha Cader is an interventional cardiologist originally from Sri Lanka and currently working at the Ibrahim Cardiac Hospital & Research Institute, Dhaka, Bangladesh; Zainab Atiyah Dakhil, is an academic and interventional cardiologist working at Ibn AlBitar Cardiac Centre Baghdad, Iraq. They share with our listeners the source of their drive to help people and why they chose cardiology, despite the hurdles they encountered along the way.
