Topic: Evolution of Cardiology
The Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to be coming to Michigan for the first time for our next Functional Forum live from Detroit. This episode, entitled "The Evolution of Cardiology" will look at new models for preventing and reversing heart disease, the biggest cause of death in both men and women.
Of all the specialties, Cardiology has the most obvious example of integrative medicine success, with Dr. Dean Ornish's "Intensive Cardiac Rehab" program having been clinically validated and now covered by Medicare and most commercial insurance carriers. Still, evolution into the mainstream has been slow, and so we are excited to encapsulate some of the models that are accelerating this shift.
This episode will include:

- Encapsulating some of the models that are accelerating this shift like "Intensive Cardiac Rehab"
- Looking at the powerful role of food as a driver of heart disease but also look at the power of community to prevent and reverse America's #1 killer
