Cardiovascular disease remains the most common cause of death in the world. 

Join Dr. Henry Tran, (a cardiovascular care physician and board-certified in cardiovascular disease and echocardiography) for this evidence-based discussion of the causes of cardiovascular disease (heart attacks, stroke) and the major risk factors for the development of disease. We will also discuss how coronary calcium scoring can be utilized as a low-cost screening test to detect early coronary artery plaque. The goal is to provide the audience an easy to understand framework of how to think about their own risk factors and opportunities to improve their health and dietary habits.

Presentation will be followed by Q&A.
