Naturopath Dr. Brady on Preventing Heart Disease
On Thursday, February 17, the Trumbull Library and the University of Bridgeport will present the second Heart Month lecture, with Naturopath Dr. David M. Brady speaking on Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Risk Management in Naturopathic Medical Practice. The #1 cause of death and disability is cardiovascular-related, and is pandemic in our society. Research suggests that foundational issues such as diet, lifestyle, obesity, chronic inflammation, insulin resistance and other factors play a large role in the formation of cardiovascular disease, and that this problem is much more than just a matter of prescribing cholesterol-lowering medications. The focus of Dr. Brady’s program will be on new cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment strategies.
Attendees will learn: The latest laboratory evaluations that your doctor is probably not doing; the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease and just how big a problem it is; the relationship between obesity, insulin resistance, stress and CVD; why the standard evaluation techniques only screen for approximately 50% of people at significant risk, and the latest and best therapeutic management options. Dr. Brady is a licensed Naturopathic Physician and a Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist. He is the Vice Provost of the Division of Health Sciences and an Associate Professor of Clinical Sciences at the University of Bridgeport, as well as a physician at Whole Body Medicine in Trumbull.
Bring lunch, as doors will open at 11: 45 a.m. The program is scheduled for noon in the Community Room. For more information, call the Library at 203.452.5197 or visit TrumbullCt-Library.org. The Trumbull Library is located at 33 Quality Street
