FELLOWSHIP IN PREVENTIVE CARDIOLOGY
Preventive cardiology is a specialized medical field dedicated to reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases, which include conditions like heart disease and stroke. This discipline focuses on strategies and interventions aimed at preventing heart-related health issues and promoting overall cardiovascular wellness.
Preventive cardiology involves several key components, including lifestyle modifications, risk assessment, and medical management. It emphasizes the importance of maintaining a heart-healthy lifestyle through practices such as a balanced diet, regular exercise, and smoking cessation. Additionally, healthcare professionals in this field evaluate an individual’s risk factors for cardiovascular disease, which may include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, and family history, among others.
