VIDEO: Collaborative clinic aims at heart of CVD prevention in rheumatic diseases




BOSTON – A multidisciplinary clinic of rheumatologists and cardiologists at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., is focused on spreading awareness of cardiovascular disease in patients with rheumatic diseases and finding the best ways to prevent it.

The Cardio-Rheumatology Clinic, which was formed in 2013, is one of a growing number of clinics around the world that have started since the first Preventive Cardio-Rheuma Clinic opened at Diakonhjemmet Hospital in Oslo. Two of the founders of the Mayo Clinic’s Cardio-Rheumatology Clinic, Dr. Sharon L. Mulvagh and Dr. Sherine Gabriel, talk about its origins, goals, and vision in a video discussion at the annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology.
