Study Summary

Screening for Atrial Fibrillation in Elderly Women (SAFE-W) is a pilot study evaluating the prevalence of atrial fibrillation (Afib) in a rapidly aging segment of the population. Studies have shown that women with Afib are more likely to be symptomatic, have increased mortality from stroke resulting from Afib, and are less likely to receive treatment for Afib. University of Maryland Department of Neurology and Vascular Neurology are recruiting women older than 70 years of age to participate in the study.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
