The Women's Health Education Program is an official partner in the Make the Call Don't Miss a Beat campaign launched by the Office on Women's Health. Over the next six months, WHEP will spread the word about the 7 heart attack symptoms in women and what steps to take if you are experiencing a symptom.
The 7 symptoms are:
- Chest pain, discomfort, pressure, or squeezing
- Shortness of breath
- Light-headedness or sudden dizziness
- Unusual upper body pain, or discomfort in one or both arms, back, shoulder, neck, jaw, or upper part of the stomach
- Unusual fatigue
- Breaking out in a cold sweat
Look for us in your publications, radio stations, and other media outlets throughout the Philadelphia area! For more information please visit the campaign's website: www.womenshealth.gov/heartattack/
The Women's Health Seminar Series is open to any students and faculty interested in attending. Typically held on Tuesday evenings (5:30-7:00) at the Queen Lane Campus, each seminar is recorded to be available for all. Please join us!

Drexel University College of Medicine's Women's Health Education Program (WHEP), part of the Department of Medicine, is one of six original National Centers of Excellence in Women's Health awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health. WHEP is committed to advocating for women's health issues in medicine. Our efforts are directed toward long and short term change, with the hope that the future physicians we train will view women's health as a fundamental element of medical care that is more than reproductive health.
Our mission is to innovate, educate, advocate and integrate by preparing tomorrow's physicians for excellence in health care delivery to all women across the lifespan.
Our goal is to train medical students to be physicians who treat patients holistically and are active listeners who integrate new knowledge with clinical care.
Students are invited to learn about our courses and programs.
Faculty and physicians can read about WHEP's mission, philosophy and goals.
Members of the community are invited to explore becoming a WHEP partner.
All are invited to learn about the latest issues in Women's Health on our WHEP Blog.
