Module XVI-A: Advanced Cardiovascular Health Broken into three distinct topic areas—including vascular biology, vascular aging, and hypertension—this advanced cardiology module will begin with the exploration of vascular biology concepts, and the relation to vascular disease, and subsequently delve into the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of vascular aging and management of hypertension. Focusing on evidence-based research with an emphasis on controlled clinical trials and peer-reviewed studies, sessions will additionally review care from an integrative perspective. Faculty member Dr. Mark Houston is considered a world-renowned expert in the fields of cardiology and hypertension, with an exemplary educational background and extensive experience in academic teaching. Attendees will not only learn direct applications for cardiovascular concepts, coupled with intensive didactic learning, but also internalize specific patient case studies and presentations. Ample time will be dedicated to interaction with Dr. Houston and peers, with an intimate environment dedicated to Q&A opportunities: in order to facilitate a rigorous and thorough background of Integrative and Metabolic Cardiovascular Medicine.
