CV Prevention with Dr Ballantyne

Listener Survey

AP Cardiology is coming up on one year next month and with that milestone, I wanted to ask for your participation in a short survey. There are 5 questions, and I’m just want to get an idea of who my audience is (so I can tailor the episodes better), what you enjoy and get any feedback you have for the show. Shouldn’t take more than a minute or two, and I’d greatly appreciate it!
