The Lessons Learned from Cardiovascular Epidemiology symposium celebrates Professor Richard Kronmal's 50-year career in cardiovascular epidemiology research. The focus is the design, analysis, and results from prospective cohort studies in cardiovascular epidemiology. There will be several broad thematic areas that highlight contemporary issues of relevance to translating the findings from these cohort studies to improving public health, including biomarkers, subclinical heart disease/imaging, neurology/stroke, the genetics of cardiovascular disease (CVD), statistical methods for CVD, and future directions in CVD epidemiology. The intent is that this all-day symposium will suggest future directions that can be used to improve the conduct of cardiovascular cohort studies. The symposium will be an opportunity for students, and early stage investigators to network with experienced researchers.

Admission is free.
The audience will be invited to make a free-will donation to support the activities of Doctors Without Borders in West Africa.

According to the World Health Organization, every country in the world is now party to at least one human rights treaty that addresses health. Despite these pledges, health as a universal human right is far from being fully realized. Significant health disparities exist on the global, national, and local level. Within King County for example, the life expectancy in the least healthy communities is a full 10 years shorter than that of the healthiest communities.
On Dec. 10, designated as the annual Human Rights Day by the United Nations, learn from Global to Local Executive Director Adam Taylor how that innovative partnership is applying cutting-edge global health strategies to improve the health of underserved communities in King County.
This is the fourth and final in a series on Public Health issues presented by the UW School of Public Health and Town Hall to foster discussion and encourage people to think broadly about the different dimensions of public health.
