W. Andrew Clark, Ph.D., R.D., (pictured left) associate dean for research and clinical practice and professor of clinical nutrition in the Department of Allied Health Sciences, is involved in interprofessional research with a number of faculty across the Division of Health Sciences to tackle the complex health condition of heart disease. He is working with a team to increase the absorption of Coenzyme Q10, so it will work better with the pharmaceutical regime of a beta blocker and a statin, along with a specific diet. The anticipated outcome will be better muscle function, oxygenation of blood, and better circulation.
 
On Tuesday, October 4, 2016, Clark is guest speaker for “CoQ10: Could It Help?” Location is the Global Understanding Video Conference Room, Campus Center Building, room 233. Start time is noon.
 
Clark will discuss the positive benefits of CoQ10 and anticipated outcome of adding CoQ10 as a supplement to one’s daily, dietary intake. The fact is the positive benefits of CoQ10 are so well established that it has become one of the most popular supplements, and many doctors, even conservative ones, are starting to recommend it.
