"Cholesterol: Understanding This Misunderstood Molecule" with Dr. Robert Maki, ND


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."
