Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, yet for many individuals it is preventable through modifications in diet, physical activity, and sedentary time – all major risk factors. Jacob Hartz, M.D., M.P.H., a cardiology fellow at Children’s National Health System, presented findings from his research on youth cardiovascular health during the American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions, held November 12-16 in New Orleans. The AHA Scientific Sessions featured the latest developments in science and cardiovascular clinical practice, including all aspects of basic, clinical, population, and translational science. Dr. Hartz spoke on “The Relationship Between Clustering of Cardiovascular Health Behaviors and Physical Fitness Among U.S. Adolescents – Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey,” and shared how grouping children with risk factors into clusters enabled researchers to pinpoint sedentary time as the leading predictor of heart health.
