On a global level, cardiovascular disease (CVD) accounts for 1 in 3 deaths and is the leading cause of death for both men and women. The most common type of heart disease in the United States is coronary heart disease.
Despite the statistics, the cardiovascular system remains underappreciated, often generating clinical attention only after a significant event, such as a stroke or heart attack.
Metagenics Institute, in collaboration with Dr. Mark Houston, invite you to get to the heart of the matter to better understand how to assess the cardiovascular health of your patients. Join us for a full day of education covering the most up-to-date, cutting-edge, and practical clinical information for both primary care physicians and specialists in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular disease. With a focus on vascular systems biology and dyslipidemia, topics will cover advanced lipid testing, sex differences, underlying causes of dyslipidemia and the role of personalized lifestyle medicine.
