The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) released a new clinical practice guideline for the treatment of blood cholesterol in people at high risk for cardiovascular diseases caused by atherosclerosis, hardening and narrowing of the arteries – which can lead to heart attack, stroke or death.  Respected cardiologist Dr. James Beckerman will review the AHA/ACC guidelines and highlight the scientific evidence behind heart-healthy lifestyle factors that can improve cardiovascular health and reduce heart disease risk. Specifically, the heart-health research surrounding the Mediterranean diet, known for its abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats, whole grains and good fats including olive oil and nuts such as walnuts, will be examined. Nutrition expert Dr. Wendy Bazilian will present the latest evidence showcasing the protective heart health qualities of this eating pattern emphasizing implications for practice.
