The Center for Women’s Cardiovascular Health at Columbia is a unique program focusing on heart health across the life span of women.
We offer comprehensive prevention programs designed to prevent and reduce a woman’s risk of heart disease, the number one leading cause of death among US women. For women who have already developed heart disease, we provide advanced subspecialty care from a team of women’s health experts, focusing on the unique aspects of heart disease manifestations in women, and how factors such as pregnancy and menopause may complicate heart health.
With heart disease being the number one killer of women, it was important to get this app right. One woman dies every minute of heart disease in the US, this is 2-3x more than deaths caused by breast cancer or by all cancers combined. Cardiologists at Columbia University Medical Center worked with us to create an app that would help women combat this deadly disease.
The Love My Heart app was built with the aim to help women learn more about their heart. The app features a Risk Calculator which calculates the different risk factors that a woman may have for heart disease. The app takes women through a series of specific questions such as ‘do you smoke,’ ‘relatives who have suffered from heart attacks,’ ‘pregnancy,’ ‘diet’ and more.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
