A presentation by John Kristofich, M.D..
Straub cardiologist John Kristofich will describe the latest information about cardiovascular disease: who gets it and why, and what you can do to dramatically reduce your risk. He will show how daily lifestyle choices -- such as what and how much we eat, how heavy we are, and our level of physical activity -- can help prevent heart attacks and strokes -- and how the right choices can make us feel better. He also will address the problem of chronic stress and its effect on the heart as well as the importance of healthy interpersonal relationships in helping to reduce the risk of developing the number one killer in the world today, cardiovascular disease.
John P. Kristofich, M.D., F.A.C.C. is board certified in cardiology and internal medicine and leads the Heart C-H-E-C-K Program at Straub Medical Center in Honolulu. His special interests include preventative cardiology and early detection of cardiovascular disease.
