According to the CDC, about 80 percent of deaths from premature heart disease and stroke are preventable with lifestyle changes. When Ohio-based cardiologist Dr. David Sabgir had the realization that only 5 percent of his patients were meeting physical activity recommendations and he wasn't enacting meaningful behavior change in his practice, he decided to change his approach.
In this webinar, you'll hear from Dr. Sabgir about his grassroots efforts to encourage movement and health education and how this has grown and impacted positive change in communities across the country. Attendees will be presented with scientific evidence showing how exercise, nutrition, sleep, and social connection all have a positive impact on preventable risk factors for heart disease, along with actionable tips to share with clients.
This webinar is sponsored by the Hass Avocado Board.
