Course Description: CVH 2002 will be the key cardiovascular conference of the new millennium.

With a focus on disease prevention and treatment, the conference will demonstrate how a multitiered approach to prevention, community education, and innovative treatment can impact cardiovascular health. The sponsoring organizations have united to develop CVH 2002 as a way to bring increased attention to the Healthy People 2010 objectives related to cardiovascular health and disease.
