Heart and Vascular Disease Prevention
Webchat Transcripts - Questions and Answers with a Physician
Cardiovascular disease is by far the leading cause of death in the United States. The more risk factors you have, the greater your chance of developing cardiovascular disease. Research about cardiovascular disease risk factors suggests that making even small lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of coronary artery disease, heart attack, stroke and other serious cardiovascular conditions. As a leader in heart care, Cleveland Clinic’s Preventive Cardiology Program uses the very latest technology in diagnosis and treatment.
