Access a sneak peek of the module through our collaborative online learning platform.

Cardiology module headed by Mark Houston, MD, MS, FACP, ABAARM, focuses on the causes and mechanisms of hypertension, diabetes, coronary artery disease and metabolic syndrome, and how these conditions are interrelated and connected. The module also discusses various methods of diagnosis, evaluation and treatment, coupled with an assessment of laboratory evaluations, nutritional treatments and lifestyle recommendations. Sessions additionally emphasize the treatment modalities available for hypercholesterolemia, hyperinsulinemia and hypertriglyceridemia, along with abnormal cholesterol fractionation results through a case history format.
