The Heart of the Matter
Victoria Maizes, M.D.
While most health providers know that heart disease is preventable, we tend to think about it too narrowly. While we prescribe statins and recommend diets and exercise, we don't necessarily look at the larger causes that might be “breaking our hearts.” In her presentation, Dr. Victoria Maizes, executive director of the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine. will discuss this broader paradigm and provide practical strategies to improve the health of our patients as well as our own well-being.
