The Libin Cardiovascular Institute is a joint entity of Alberta Health Services and the University of Calgary. Our more than 1,500 members include physicians, clinicians and other health professionals, researchers and trainees.
Two million Canadians have suffered cardiovascular disease or stroke. At $25 billion annually, the cost to our health care system is staggering, accounting for 10 per cent of total health care costs.
