Female Risk factors for post-Infarction Depression and Anxiety (FRIDA Study)

It is well established that women are at higher risk for developing depression and anxiety following acute myocardial infarction which has associated mortality, re-hospitalisation, and decreased quality of life. The goal of Kiera’s research is to understand which cardiovascular risk factors or social determinants of health women at higher risk to inform tailored interventions following AMI in the primary care and cardiac rehabilitation settings. Kiera’s research is supported by a Mach-Gaensslen Foundation studentship.
