EPI Lifestyle 2016
American Heart Association (AHA) EPI/Lifestyle 2016 Scientific Sessions – Epidemiology and Prevention | Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health is organized by American Heart Association and would be held during Mar 1-4, 2016 at Hyatt Regency Phoenix, Phoenix, Arizona, United States of America.
The targeted audience for this medical event basically for researchers as well as public health practitioners and clinicians, physicians, epidemiologists, dietitians, nutritional scientists, exercise physiologists, behavioral scientists, biostatisticians, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurses, school health professionals and other health scientists.
This medical conference 2016 aims at to promote the development and application of translational and population science to prevent heart disease and stroke and foster cardiovascular health. This year the theme will be “From Precision Medicine to a Culture of Health”.
At the conclusion of this program participants should be able to:
• Recognize opportunities to address modifiable risk factors for CVD to help meet AHA components of ideal cardiovascular health. Explore the causes and health consequences of continuing disparities in CVD risk factors among certain racial/ethnic, age, gender and socioeconomic groups.
• Identify mobile technologies and opportunities for research that, together, lead to effective, evidence-based patient-centric interventions that reduce CVD risk and improve cardiovascular care.
• Identify new and emerging electronic data resources and tools for conducting cardiovascular research. Detail these tools’ potential for conducting cardiovascular research and developing models that can predict CVD or slow its progression.
•Explain the concept of precision medicine and identify opportunities and applications for precision medicine in CVD prevention and treatment. Support early-career cardiologists who are pursuing career opportunities and pathways in CVD epidemiology and prevention research.
