Protect Yourself from Heart Attack, Stroke, Kidney Failure & More
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is one of the biggest threats to our health and well-being— responsible for 610,000 deaths every year.
But there is good news! New medications, interventions, and surgeries have been developed, along with a more personalized approach to care, which has dramatically improved outcomes.
That’s why University Health News is so pleased to announce the publication of a new report that reveals the latest research-backed tools to help protect yourself from CAD, which can lead to angina (chest pain), heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, and more.
