According to the American Heart Association, half of all Americans have at least one major risk factor for heart disease. It's the No. 1 killer in America, and, in 2015, the number of Americans dying of heart disease increased for the first time in a decade. So why has the progress against this deadly disease stalled? On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, cardiologist Dr. Stephen Kopecky will discuss the ongoing battle against heart disease and offer tips for prevention. Also on the program, exercise specialist Dan Gaz will explain the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program and its three pillars of health and wellness. And radiologist Dr. Adam Weisbrod will share the latest innovations in radiology.
Listen to the program on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 9:05 a.m. CST.
