Abstract

Maintaining the Benefit of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Programs: The Challenge for Future Generations

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) account for 1 in every 3 deaths in the United States at an annual cost of $149 billion dollars or 17% of total medical expenditure. Over the next 20 years, the prevalence of CVD will increase by 10% with a 3-fold increase in cost. CVD has emerged as a leading cause for mortality in both males and females in the United States.
