The Dallas-based, American Heart Association (AHA), is one of the most influential, non-profit, medical groups in the United States. Of 100 large national charities, it has been ranked as the fifth (5th) most popular in America.
Dr. Pierre Lemieux, COO of Acasti said:
"In this important AHA session about prevention and nutrition, we will raise awareness on the low daily recommended dose of CaPre™ which will substantially help increase compliance and avoid side effects, contrary to established prescriptions and nutraceutical omega-3s."
