Region-specific findings on the global burden of cardiovascular disease: examining trends in North America
August 8, 2022
The JACC special report, “Global Burden of Cardiovascular Diseases and Risk Factors,” published in December 2020, demonstrated that cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) remain the leading cause of disease burden in the world—causing one-third of deaths globally. The report also conveyed that CVD rates are rising in many regions where they had previously declined.
Addressing the urgent need to reduce risk factors for CVD through modifiable behaviors, JACC Journals, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, and the National Institutes of Health’s National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute have developed a webinar series focused on region-specific findings and considerations.
Join moderator Gregory A. Roth, MD, MPH, FACC, and expert panelists Michael Brauer, ScD; Frank B. Hu, MD, MPH, PhD; Athena Poppas, MD, MACC; and Janet Wright, MD, FACC, for the second in this webinar series, outlining prevalent modifiable risk factors in North America. The experts analyze key trends and answer critical questions about the implications of these findings on clinical practice, how clinicians can address modifiable risks with patients, and considerations for health policy.
