UVa Launches Heart Clinic

December 9, 2008

The UVa Health System launched a new healthcare delivery system Tuesday.

The program is being run through the medical center's heart clinic or the Club Red Clinic. Doctors say that they realized that there is a need for gender specific cardiovascular care, which is why UVa decided to launch a women's heart clinic.

The new clinic will offer a variety of healthcare options.

"Our goal is to help women reduce their risk through a variety of types of interventions," said Amy Tucker, associate professor of cardiac medicine at UVa.

Tucker says those interventions include diet, exercise as well as offering different medications.
