This presentation pinpoints and describes all the health factors and behaviours that can increase the risk for cardiovascular disease. With this knowledge and understanding, we are better able to take preventive action against cardiovascular disease in our own lives. We therefore live longer; experience dramatic reductions in our lifetime risk for cardiovascular events, such as heart attack or stroke; and enjoy a better quality of life.

Following the presentation, the audience will:
• Identify cardiovascular disease risk factors;
• Understand the targets for each risk factor, and;
• Identify practical steps toward to improving cardiovascular health.
