STEM Café: Heart Health — Food, Exercise and Medicine for a Healthy Heart

Learn about evidence-based practices to understand and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Meg Burnham will discuss the foods most likely to increase or decrease heart disease risk and how to apply this knowledge in realistic and useful strategies you can introduce into your own lifestyle. She encourages her clients to make small changes, focus on foods that make them feel good and give them pleasure, and strive for progress and not perfection in eating.

Cardiologist Dr. Jeffrey Ziffra will explain atherosclerosis — a disease in which plaque builds up on the inner walls of the arteries — and will discuss prevention, treatment and cardiovascular risk assessment. He’ll share information about individualized care and discuss preventative measures that may negate the need for medications.
