The audience began by listing seven components of ideal cardiovascular health and two critical social factors that affect health status in association with demographic trends that will affect population health status over the next three decades. Following that was a panel discussion with Dr. Gayle D. Chacon, Dr. William B. Jenkins, Dr. Guillermo Tortolero-Luna, Dr. Umair A. Shah, Stephen L. Williams, Dr. Eduardo Sanchez and moderated by George Strait. The program chair, Dr. Lovell A. Jones, gave closing remarks.
