Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of both men and women in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control reports that more than 600,000 Americans die of heart disease each year. That’s one in every four deaths. Those interested in the latest advancements in cardiovascular care, along with tips for a heart-healthy lifestyle, are encouraged to attend the event.
