For World Heart Day on September 29, the American Medical Association (AMA) will lead a tweetchat (use the hashtag #AHealthierNation) to help physicians partner with their patients to ensure a healthy heart environment. Family medicine physician Michael Rakotz, MD, will chat with cardiologist Clyde Yancy, MD, past president of the American Heart Association, to discuss heart-health topics that have received attention in recent studies, such as optimal control targets, exercise, diet, cholesterol, and the role of aspirin. The chat begins at 3:00 PM ET and will span one hour. Follow the AMA on Twitter at
