At the Salon: At the salon, participants will learn about the cardiometabolic spectrum. We will review how the interplay between blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, and weight relate to the development of cardiovascular diseases like heart attacks and stroke. Determining a person's risk using screening tools and how to reduce this risk using lifestyle modification, and when necessary, pharmaceuticals will also be discussed.
