Although heart disease and stroke death rates are leveling off after 40 years of steady decline in the United States, cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the nation’s leading cause of death for men and women of all races and ethnicities. It is the greatest contributor to racial disparities in life expectancy and in some populations, CVD is increasing. This session of Grand Rounds will discuss what Tennessee is doing to create healthy communities, what practices can do to improve heart health by managing the ABCS, and what can be done to prevent a second heart attack.
