This lecture is centered around Coronary Artery Disease in South Asians, but most of this information applies to everyone. Understanding the links between heart disease and our Diet, genetics, hormones, and gut bacteria is so important. It was great to partner with the Indian American Business Association with our first Heart health Event together. We hosted it here at Cardiovascular Interventions and provided members with tours of our facility then ended the night with this lecture.
