2020 FH Global Summit – Session 3

November 19 @ 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 3 - Can Behavioral Economics Drive Cardiovascular Disease Prevention?






Session 3
November 19, 2020 at 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM ET

Guidelines and therapies can be effective and still not be implemented if barriers to prescribing are not removed. An individual “patient” spends 5,000 hours without a healthcare provider making their own daily choices to improve their health or take their medication. Is it possible to align these stakeholders? Join us to hear from Dr. Kevin Volpp about how health incentives, behavioral economics, and “nudges” can improve cardiovascular health. This session will include a dynamic discussion with diverse healthcare stakeholders.
