UC Davis Health cardiologist and heart failure specialist Kathleen Tong will talk about “What Works to Prevent Second Heart Attacks” during a grand rounds presentation sponsored by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Titled “Million Hearts® 2022: A Compelling Call to Action,” the grand rounds lecture takes place Tuesday, Feb. 20, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Pacific Time. It can be viewed live via webcast or Facebook:
Those unable to view the session at the scheduled time can watch it later on the Public Health Grand Rounds archive on the CDC’s website.
In addition to Tong’s presentation, other grand rounds speakers will address current Million Hearts priorities, how Tennessee is creating heart-healthy communities and strategies for reducing heart-disease risks.
Million Hearts was launched by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to promote evidence-based public health and clinical goals and strategies for reducing cardiovascular disease, the nation’s leading cause of death. Over the next five years, the initiative aims to engage and equip partners and stakeholders to reach or exceed aggressive goals that will improve cardiovascular health and care for all Americans. One goal, for instance, is to increase participation in cardiac rehabilitation to improve health following a cardiac event or procedure. More information is online at millionhearts.hhs.gov.
