Discovery Health CME Explores the Benefits and Risks of Aspirin in Aspirin Therapy: Maximizing the Benefits
Date:9/28/2007

ad adoption of aspirin therapy. Charles Hennekens, M.D., Dr.P.H., states that "the annual cost to save a life using aspirin is a mere $13.00, compared to costs with prescription drugs that are exponentially higher. What we have here is serious clinical evidence to support the medical economics." He suspects that "if aspirin were half as effective, 10 times as expensive and on prescriptions, perhaps it would be more widely and appropriately utilized."

ASPIRIN THERAPY: MAXIMIZING THE BENEFITS features an outstanding panel of leading authorities on preventive medicine and internal medicine:

-- Charles Hennekens of the Department of Clinical Science and Medical

Education & Center of Excellence at Florida Atlantic University,

voluntary professor of medicine & epidemiology and public health at

University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and clinical professor of

Preventive Medicine, NOVA Southeastern University

-- Nieca Goldberg, M.D., medical director of the NYU Women's Heart Program

and associate professor of medicine at New York University School of

Medicine

-- Michael Pignone, M.D., M.P.H., division chief and associate professor,

Division of General Internal Medicine & Epidemiology, University of

North Carolina School of Medicine

"We are pleased to be able to provide an esteemed panel of physicians to discuss these data. It is our hope that this resource will give medical professionals the knowledge to ultimately improve the utilization of this low- cost, high-benefit medicine," said Dr. Whyte.

This Discovery Health CME program and others are available to physicians on a variety of platforms to fit their individual needs. Physicians and other health care professionals can watch the programs on Discovery Health every Saturday and Sunday at 8 AM and 9 AM (ET/PT).
