The Essentials of Residual Risk Video Series is offered to help address the Residual Risk of disability or death from heart disease or stroke. These cardiovascular disorders cause approximately 18 million deaths annually. After declining for nearly a half century, their frequency has been increasing over the past 5 years. Our goal is to examine the potential reasons for this increase in the major cause of death worldwide and to suggest new approaches to prevention. The IAS has developed this accredited video series to systematically address the recent information on vascular risk and to suggest new approaches to reduce this residual risk. Led by Dr William Virgil Brown, Program Director, this series brings together top experts recognized globally, regionally, and nationally to discuss real-world issues in identification of preventable risk as well as current and future treatments of risk factors. The series is to be released in four modules in May, June, July, and August, 2021.
