AHA and ACOG recommend cardiovascular risk screening at OB–GYN well visits. Many women, especially during their childbearing years, view obstetricians and gynecologists (OB–GYNs) as their primary care providers. Therefore, annual OB–GYN well visits present an ideal opportunity to address cardiovascular disease risk reduction. To that end, the American Heart Association and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have issued a joint advisory with specific recommendations for lifestyle modifications and screening (go to http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/early/2018/05/09/CIR.0000000000000582).
