Speaker: Colin Rose, M.D., Ph.D. Monday, November 12, 2018 Karnak Shriners' Temple 3350 Sources Blvd., DDO 7 pm
Dr. Colin Rose will speak about cardio-metabolic diseases which are a spectrum of metabolic derangements, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and atherosclerosis that are directly related to lifestyle choices that kill and maim millions of people per year. Treatment of these diseases by surgery and drugs is expensive and largely futile in terms of life expectancy. For example, the USA spends far more than any other developed country on its medical system but has the lowest of any measure of health. This talk will explain how the individual’s environment can cause disease and describe current recommendations to optimize habits to prevent and treat cardio-metabolic disease.
