“More than 15 million Americans have coronary artery disease. It is estimated that approximately every 42 seconds, an American will suffer from a heart attack. Heart attacks, along with strokes, remain the number-one cause of death worldwide in both women and men. As a physician, I attest that we still do not know many things in cardiology or medicine, but there is great hope. There is hope for reversing the risks and improving survival,” says Dr. Dia.
