Statement of Need
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States, which encompasses more than half a dozen diseases from hypertension to congestive heart failure and congenital defects. Identification and reduction in risk factors are the most pronounced way of reducing the incidences of cardiovascular disease in the United States. With emerging therapies at the forefront of cardiovascular disease maintenance, there exists a strong need to provide educational programs to primary care physicians, internists, family physicians and other medical professionals who manage patients with any form of cardiovascular disease.
