EPI/NPAM 2012Epidemiology and Prevention, Nutrition, Physical Activity & Metabolism
The primary goal of the EPI/NPAM Scientific Sessions is to promote the development and application of translational and population science related to the prevention of heart disease and stroke and promotion of cardiovascular health.
The Councils on Epidemiology & Prevention (EPI) and Nutrition, Physical Activity & Metabolism (NPAM) jointly plan the EPI/NPAM Scientífic Sessions. The sessions focus on obesity, nutrition, physical activity, genetics, metabolism, biomarkers, risk factors, subclinical disease, clinical disease, healthy populations, and global health and prevention clinical trials. The program also highlights strategies to translate advances in basic and clinical science into efforts to promote cardiometabolic health in both the clinical and population setting.
The program includes presentations of new high-quality, high-impact research; and, it is organized around oral, moderated poster, and poster abstract presentations, with special translational science lectures and debates on current issues relevant to cardiometabolic health and preventive cardiology.
