Statement of Need A key strategy for addressing heart disease and stroke is to educate the public and healthcare practitioners about the importance of prevention. When healthcare providers perform consistent risk factor assessments, more patients can be properly diagnosed and medically managed to prevent cardiovascular disease. Both primary and secondary prevention, as well as new developments in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease, need to be addressed. Complimenting CVD Prevention Symposium are comprehensive updates on the latest advances in cardiovascular medicine. Experts will concentrate on therapeutic lifestyle intervention, lipids and lipoproteins, familial hypercholesterolemia, lipoprotein (a), residual risk, genetics for predicting CVD, hypertension, obesity, consensus and controversies in cardiometabolic health, triglycerides and CVD, PCSK9, heart health for women, insulin resistance, CHF, valvular heart disease, cardiovascular imaging, new paradigm for acute stroke management, the role of surgery, interventional cardiology and radiology for CVD health.
