CDC Telebriefing: New Vital Signs Report - How can progress be made in preventable deaths from heart attack and stroke?
One out of every three deaths in the U.S. is due to cardiovascular disease. A large proportion of heart attacks and strokes do not have to happen. CDC will discuss the latest data on number of preventable death from heart attack and stroke, who is most at risk, where progress is needed and what can be done to drive down these deaths.
