Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the #1 cause of death in the US and impacts many with severe outcomes or significant impact to quality of life. Proper patient management is a major challenge, especially when genetics play a crucial role. The Baylor College of Medicine HeartCareTM program aims to change patient management and improve lives by interrogating a set of genes that influence the risk of cardiovascular disease and other related conditions in order to find the proper treatment for each patient. Join us in listening to experts, Dr. Christie Ballantyne, Dr. Ronald Maag and Damon Hostin of illumina, as they discuss the program goals, learnings, and next steps to expand this program to improve patient care and outcomes for patients with cardiovascular disease.
