Making the Connection:
A Call to Action on Vascular Health

Vascular 2013 host organizations release a Vascular Declaration calling for urgent action on vascular disease

Leading Canadian experts working in the field of vascular health have signed and committed to a Vascular Declaration, a collective approach to reducing vascular disease in Canada. Direct action is required at all levels to achieve meaningful impact.

Making the Connection: A Call to Action on Vascular Health, calls for an integrated, multifaceted approach to address the prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and end-of-life care for people with vascular disease.

Ninety per cent of Canadians are facing an unacceptable risk of developing vascular disease. We have to act now to reduce its increasing burden.

Read the Declaration. Join us. Be part of the solution.
