2020 FH Global Summit – Session 2

October 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

2020 FH Global Summit Virtual Conference

Our 9th annual FH Global Summit will be convened as a series of eight monthly virtual sessions focused on driving new solutions to prevent inherited cardiovascular disease from September 2020 – May 2021.

Over the course of this conference, leading experts from multiple disciplines share the latest research to advance scientific understanding and optimize care for people at risk for premature heart attacks, stroke and heart disease. Each attendee is selected because of their unique views and the contribution they can make to the discussion.

The FH Foundation believes that collectively we can develop the solutions to stop premature heart disease. Join us to become part of the change.




Session 2 - Unlocking the potential of precision health for diverse populations

 

 

 

 

 

Session 2
October 22, 2020 at 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM ET

Precision medicine holds the promise to revolutionize clinical care but only if all populations can share in those benefits. While FH and high lipoprotein(a) impact all races and ethnicities, contemporary studies (including from the FH Foundation’s CASCADE FH longitudinal study) continue to demonstrate unacceptable disparities in care particularly for Black, Asian and Latin populations and for women. Join Dr. Latrice Landry for a provocative discussion about overcoming the challenges of disparities in care.
