Stanford Medical Center Family Abuse Prevention Council presents
Stanford’s 8th Annual National “Health Cares about Domestic Violence Day”
"Sticks and Stones May Break My Heart:
How Early Environment Shapes Lifelong Cardiovascular Risk"
In the US, one in three women develops cardiovascular disease. As a principal investigator of the Nurses Health Study 2, which has followed over 118,000 nurses since 1989, Dr. Rich-Edwards and her group at Harvard are exploring early life factors that influence the risk of developing chronic disease in adulthood - including the possible role of maltreatment on heart health. In addition, she has recently received an NIH grant to study “Violence, Genes, and Cardiovascular Disease in Women”.
Dr. Janet Rich-Edwards, ScD
Director of Developmental Epidemiology, Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology
Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
Associate Professor of Epidemiology, Harvard School of Public Health
