Foundation for Health Improvement and Technology (FHIT) Launched to Beat Cardiovascular Disease
Date:3/15/2012

diovascular and related chronic diseases.

The unique aspect of FHIT is the organization's ability to not only spread the message of early detection, but to also develop unique, online resources for peer-to-peer education. "These comprehensive and dynamic compilations of biomarkers and other cardiovascular resources will undoubtedly become invaluable to medical professionals and set a new standard for the medical community," said Warnick.

FHIT, which advocates for comprehensive testing to help physicians personalize treatment based on a total patient profile, will measure its success by how well it helps the medical community detect risk factors that pre-dispose patients to disease at an earlier stage. By taking a preventative approach, FHIT argues that physicians now have the opportunity to access advanced tools and scientific evidence to predict angiographic disease or coronary heart disease events. 

"FHIT will encourage the medical community to move beyond total cholesterol and other outdated measurement techniques, and instead provide physicians with education and research that demonstrates firsthand how medical practices can surpass the mainstream lipid panel and take advantage of the more advanced biomarkers now readily available," said Warnick. "Through the FHIT organization, we will teach physicians around the world how to focus on all of the cholesterol components, other biomarkers, and their impact on overall heath. This is an important step toward turning cardiovascular and related metabolic disorders into diseases of the past."
