Heart Disease and Its Solutions

healthy lifestyle workshop

The statistics on heart disease might be grim (it accounts for approximately 610,000 deaths annually, 1 out of 4, and is the leading cause of mortality in the United States.). However, cardiovascular professor, researcher, and doctor Monica Aggarwal has some good news: lifestyle changes can significantly impact heart health.

In this workshop, Dr. Aggarwal gets to the roots of heart disease – what it is and what puts us at risk. You will understand your own risk of developing heart disease and finish with a discussion of what you can do to reduce those risks.
