Preventing and Treating Heart Failure

Professor Barry Greenberg

Heart failure is one of the most common chronic diseases in developed nations, and its prevalence is on the rise. Heart failure is associated with a substantial reduction in survival, an increased risk of hospitalization, and a quality of life that is among the lowest of all chronic diseases. Heart failure is known to develop in stages, beginning with the presence of recognized risk factors such as hypertension, coronary artery disease, and inactivity that lead to the development of structural abnormalities in the heart. This lecture will discuss effective therapies that can be used to prevent and treat heart failure and an aggressive therapeutic approach that has been shown to improve outcomes in heart failure at all stages of the disease.

Instructor: Dr. Barry Greenberg is Distinguished Professor of Medicine and Director of the Advanced Heart Failure Treatment Program at UC San Diego. His research focuses on understanding the mechanisms of cardiac dysfunction and developing new heart-failure therapies. He has edited several textbooks and has served as Associate Editor for the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
