Heart attacks can happen at any time to anyone. It is important to know if you are at risk. There are many factors that increase your chances of having a heart attack, including:
•    Previous heart attack
•    Heart-related disease         
•    High cholesterol
•    High blood pressure
•    Diabetes

Local physicians are conducting a research study of an investigational medication and its ability to reduce your risk of having a heart attack and other cardiovascular events such as a stroke. If you are currently taking a medication to lower your cholesterol and have one or more of the conditions listed above, you may qualify for participation in this study.
