Heart Health Lecture Series
NYU Langone’s Center for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease hosts free educational events throughout the year through our Heart Health Lecture Series. Launched in 2015 under the direction of Dennis A. Goodman, MD, this patient education initiative focuses on helping you take control of your heart health and work toward a healthier future.
Presented via webinar, the Heart Health Lecture Series covers topics such as sleep, nutrition, exercise, obesity, and stress. The series also highlights the latest information related to the conditions that increase cardiovascular disease risk such as diabetes, autoimmune conditions, thrombotic disorders, and high blood pressure. Our expert speakers present the latest clinical information on scientific research, offer suggestions for better health, and provide dedicated time to answer questions from webinar participants.
