The Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE) was formed to redefine preventive heart health. We are the only non-profit organization that is dedicated to ending the threat of heart attack. In this video, Dr. Morteza Naghavi, the founder of SHAPE, explains what patients can do to uncover their hidden heart attack risk.
SHAPE's work is guided by the active participation and support of world renowned cardiovascular specialists and researchers. We maintain an energetic, full time staff as well as a growing team of dedicated volunteers. Our "Campaign to Eradicate Heart Attack" is designed to emphasize education, treatment and research. The goal is to move the industry from "sick care" to prevention or "health care," and eventually to a cure for the world's number one cause of death.
To accomplish our immediate objectives we are focused on promoting the SHAPE Guideline, a screening protocol that builds on the old paradigm in cardiology, risk factor detection and treatment.
