What Your Physician Doesn't Tell You About Cholesterol...
At our May 5th membership meeting health promotion expert, David Meinz will present the latest information that even your physician may not know.
He will discuss something that could possibly save your life or someone you love from having a cardiac event. Endorsed by the American Heart Association, Carotid Intima-Media Test (CIMT) is a non-invasive ultrasound of the neck that measures the thickness of the inner two layers of the carotid artery; the intima and media.
This test predicts cardiovascular disease long before other more traditional tests. David will also present simple, bottom-line tools needed to prevent cardiovascular disease.
David Meinz is comedic as well as educational. He has presented multiple times at the Hinman meeting and if you've seen him, you know how entertaining he is. If you haven't, you're in for a fun, informative, and potentially life-saving experience!
