App-y days are here in fighting coronary artery disease - SRMC Featured in Vero News
Worried about a heart attack brought on by coronary artery disease (CAD)?
Dr. Lilian Ahiable, a fresh face at the Steward Medical Group in Vero Beach, is using a modern mantra to help stop CAD.
There is, she says, an app for that.
And why not?
The American College of Cardiology says that every 40 seconds, someone in this country dies from CAD.
Indeed, the ACC says cardiovascular diseases in general and coronary artery disease in particular account for roughly 800,000 U.S. deaths a year.
If an “app” can help slash those numbers, that’s got to be a good thing.
