Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn

Registrations are no longer being accepted for a forum on heart disease prevention on the Youngstown State University campus on Wednesday, Jan. 18, 7 to 9 p.m. in the Ohio Room of Kilcawley Center.

Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr. will speak on how diet and lifestyle changes can end the heart disease epidemic in the country.

Carrie Clyde, YSU Wellness coordinator, said response to the event has been great and that there is no more room for any other attendees.

Esselstyn is a former internationally known surgeon, researcher and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic.

He will present the results of his groundbreaking 20-year nutritional study, the longest study of its kind to be conducted, to explain how conventional cardiology has failed patients by developing treatments that focus only on the symptoms of heart disease and not the cause.
