Cardiovascular and Other
Clinical Topics
Adult Vaccination, Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, Nutrition, Obesity, and Stroke

From hypertension and stroke to obesity and diabetes, the science to support a shift toward a plant-based approach for disease reversal and prevention is abundant. Poor nutrition is the root cause of a myriad of health issues, health disparities, ethnic disparities and exorbitant healthcare costs. Explore how even small reductions in animal product intake can have a measurable health impact. In our dual pandemic of CVD and COVID, we need to advocate for risk factor reduction, whenever and wherever possible by improving our microbiome to reduce mortality associated with nutrition-related illnesses.

Learning Objectives

  1. Demonstrate the underlying causes of cardiovascular risk factors and their relationship to trauma.
  2. Evaluate the relationship between ethnic disparities in mortality in the dual pandemic.
  3. Assess how the outcomes of COVID-19 are related to the changes in the microbiome with nutrition.
