Cholesterol: Understanding This Misunderstood Molecule

Please join us on Tuesday July 2nd, 2013 at 4pm pacific / 7pm eastern as we host Hawthorn University faculty member Dr. Robert Maki, ND for a webinar entitled "Cholesterol: Understanding This Misunderstood Molecule."

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the leading causes of death in the US, affecting approximately 65 million Americans. In fact, it is estimated that close to 1 million Americans suffer a heart attack each year. As a result, much of the attention has been placed on cholesterol. In this webinar, we will discuss what cholesterol is, how it works and the role it plays in CVD. This webinar will give you a better understanding of this critically important, but highly misunderstood molecule and hopefully dispel some common misconceptions.

Dr. Robert Maki is a Naturopathic Doctor and a graduate of Bastyr University in Seattle, WA. Dr. Maki is also a faculty member at Hawthorn University and maintains a private practice in Southern California, which is focused on Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) and other hormonal problems such as Diabetes, thyroid disorders and weight loss. In addition to his private practice and role at Hawthorn, Dr. Maki is the host of a healthy weight loss podcast on iTunes titled “The Dr. Rob Show.”
