Lisbon School of Medicina celebrated World Heart Day 2019

Cardiovascular Diseases are at the top of the list as the leading cause of death per year worldwide. It is estimated that about 80% of premature deaths could be prevented if proper care had been taken by controlling for major risk factors such as smoking, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity.
