Dr. Eduardo Sanchez is the Chief Medical Officer for prevention at the American Heart Association, the nation's oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. Dr. Sanchez previously served as the Texas Commissioner of Health and has had advisory roles with the CDC, the Institute of Medicine, and the National Quality Forum. Throughout my professional career as a heart surgeon, the American Heart Association has played invaluable roles in my own training as a researcher, a teacher, and as an active clinical surgeon. Dr. Sanchez shares with us why our own good heart health is so important to reduce the risk associated with the COVID virus, and why zip code can be a better predictor of our own health than our genetics.
