The focus of this journal club will continue to be the presentation of research being conducted by the CVD training grant trainees and faculty collaborating with the URL, as it relates to subclinical cardiovascular disease. This may take the form of practice for overview/comprehensive meetings, preparation for conference talks and/or informal works in progress (WIP) presentations. In addition, we will review published articles related to subclinical cardiovascular disease measure epidemiology and methodology.
