Heart disease contributes to a large but potentially preventable burden of death and disability. This burden is uneven with particularly vulnerable/at risk groups - including those living in regional areas and developing countries, Indigenous Australians and older patients with chronic heart disease. Prof. Simon Stewart will lead national/international collaborations to undertake innovative, multidisciplinary, prevention and disease management programs to reduce the impact and burden of heart disease in these vulnerable groups.
