Hereby we would like to invite you to the lecture
“Here, There and Everywhere: Understanding the Impact of Cardiovascular Disease across the World”
given by Prof Martin O’Flaherty from the Department of Public Health Policy, University of Liverpool.
In his lecture, Prof O’Flaherty will discuss why it is important to understand the impact of cardiovascular disease, particularly if we want to reduce the unequal burden of cardiovascular disease globally. Work in more than 20 countries will illustrate what we know about what makes cardiovascular disease spread in a population and, importantly, what are the best strategies to tackle it. And how these insights can help to prevent other diseases, like cancer or dementia
