About Me

I am a cardiovascular researcher, registered kinesiologist and founder of the Heart Health Initiative and Research. This blog was created to disseminate relevant and current research on heart health wellness and information about heart disease treatment, management and prevention and cardiac rehabilitation. My blog also promotes advocacy and health policies as well as interpreting issues in the research about cardiovascular risk communities, especially patients of African descent.
