March 2017 President's Letter
All eyes are focused on our NATF Spring Patient Program to empower patients with the knowledge they need to prevent blood clots and improve their cardiovascular health. We will hold our dinner meeting from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 13, 2017, at Harvard Medical School’s Joseph B. Martin Conference Center.
The core curriculum will contain key information on four hot topics: 1) How to prevent diabetes and metabolic syndrome, 2) Can blood tests determine your risk for cardiovascular disease?, 3) New powerful medications that are even more potent than statins to lower cholesterol levels, 4) The $100 million American Heart Association grant awarded to Calum MacRae, MD, PhD, called “One Brave Idea” to cure heart disease.
The program includes dinner with the experts and provides an excellent opportunity for networking with NATF members.
Last year, we held a similar dinner event entitled “Power to the Patient.” It was a spectacular success with sell-out attendance.
Please register now for our April 13, 2017 Patient Symposium.
