SAN ANTONIO — In this video exclusive, Deepak L. Bhatt, MD, MPH, executive director of interventional cardiovascular programs at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, highlights the take-home messages from his keynote lecture at the American Society for Preventive Cardiology Congress on CVD Prevention, which focused on key discoveries from REDUCE-IT and other trials showing benefit of treating patients beyond LDL lowering.
