CSU-Los Angeles Takes Steps To Prevent Heart Disease Among At-Risk Women
California State University-Los Angeles this week announced a new campaign that aims to prevent heart disease among women who are at high-risk of cardiovascular disease. On Monday, the school held a forum featuring no-cost heart screenings and a panel of experts to discuss the issue. In addition, teams of students are competing to create a mobile application to help students track blood pressure, cholesterol and other risk factors. The school also will provide additional screenings for heart disease and educational exhibits through the year.
