The future of CVD risk assessment – Heart Foundation Webinar

To celebrate World Heart Day this month, the Heart Foundation is partnering with the World Heart Federation to host a global clinical debate on the future of CVD risk assessment.

There is growing interest in the use of novel imaging techniques, clinical biomarkers and genetics to augment traditional CVD risk assessment. We will convene a panel of international and local experts to debate this topical question – should population-based CVD risk assessment models make way for individualised risk prediction techniques?

The webinar will be facilitated by Heart Foundation Chief Medical Advisor Prof Garry Jennings and include expert panellists: Prof Stephen Nicholls, Prof Gemma Figtree and one of the world’s most highly regarded experts in cardiovascular disease prevention and epidemiology, Prof Donald Lloyd-Jones from Northwestern University, Chicago.

The future of CVD risk assessment – webinar details:
