Chahinda Ghossein named Top Woman Limburg 2022

UM researcher Chahinda Ghossein has been named this year’s ‘Top Woman of Limburg province’. She received the title at a ceremony in Weert on 22 September organised by the Topvrouwen Limburg Foundation.

Chahinda Ghossein is a cardiologist in training at Maastricht UMC+ and a researcher at Maastricht University. Her research focuses on cardiovascular diseases in women, particularly in relation to their pregnancy. She is committed to this women-specific issue through her work as a cardiologist and scientist, and through the Queen of Hearts foundation, which she has set up.

Chahinda Ghossein says she aims to give the topic more exposure and to break existing taboos. She is the author of a book about the impact of pregnancy complications on women and she organises projects in which science, music and art come together.
