Legislator in the Lab: Meeting Agenda

April 7, 2010
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Baltimore, Maryland

In 2010, the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) will host five “Legislator in the Lab” meetings at medical schools across the country. These meetings took state legislators into medical laboratories to learn from doctors and other medical professionals about the diagnosis, impact and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

In April, NCSL hosted such a meeting at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Legislators saw presentations on disparities in outcomes from cardiovascular disease and on cardiovascular disease and acute coronary syndrome. In addition legislators were able to tour the simulation center where medical students are able to develop and practice their clinical and cultural competency skills.

Information on developing healthy communities that ward off cardiovascular disease.
