Have an interactive discussion of aging and the cardiovascular system with a practicing cardiologist and researcher of age related change!

It is the pleasure of our CEASLTC to introduce to you Dr. Philip Houck. His work on the aging of the cardiovascular system are theorized in the context of biologic age, a shortening of overall survival. Dr. Houck believes that all comorbidities further shorten our survival and cardiac performance parameters may create problems, consequences, and/or solutions for further research.

Dr. Houck, as a practicing cardiologist, will do a short presentation of his paper on biologic aging and the cardiovascular system. Houck states we should be talking to our patients about “years likely to survive” or “biologic age”. Followed up by a discussion of how many years a person might gain if comorbidities are controlled?

What do you think? Tune in and let us know.

Recordings of Past Webinars

COVID-19 and the Impact on the Latinx Community

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a disproportionate impact on the Latinx community in Texas and across the nation. They are facing more severe health and economic consequences than the white population. This webinar will address the impact of COVID-19 on the Latinx community, including the risk factors for and effects of the disease, the financial consequences and resources available, how Latinx people with disabilities are affected, and focus on where we go from here to address these disparities and improve outcomes for the Latinx community.

Hearing Loss, Communication and Mental Health

Dr. Margaret Wallhagen will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on people with hearing loss when everyone is wearing a mask and isolating. Hearing loss exacerbates the impact of isolation and enhances the risk for isolation, depression, confusion and delirium.
