Our objective

Our main focus for prevention of atherosclerosis is on children and young adults with risk factors for early heart disease, especially those who are obese, are exposed to passive smoke in the home, smoke themselves or have high levels of cholesterol. We are also focusing on subjects with pre-diabetes or diabetes, and babies who are born small at full term.

Our goals are to detect and prevent complications from three primary types of serious heart disease:

  1. Atherosclerosis – the narrowing of the main blood vessels in the body, and the main cause of heart attack and stroke.
  2. Congenital heart disease – as an increasing number of adults surviving with inborn heart problems still require extensive care and treatment.
  3. Pulmonary vascular disease – the narrowing of the main blood vessels to the lungs, which can lead to overload of the right side of the heart.

Our impact

Early detection and prevention of advanced heart disease may save hundreds of thousands of lives each year.
