As CEO of Aviir, Inc., Dr. Harrington brings more than 25 years of experience in the commercialization of health care technology. Aviir, Inc. is an Irvine-based biotechnology company that develops innovative diagnostic and laboratory tests. Dr. Harrington's personal mission is to offer clarity to heart disease through reliable assessments and prevention.

The Los Angeles Ultimate Women's Expo sought out some of the best seminar speakers around the world to participate in their event, which is held in several cities across the country.

GuardaHeart sponsors heart risk assessments through an on-going collaboration with Aviir.  Far too many lives continue to be needlessly lost to heart disease, while many more are burdened with the medical debt caused by surviving a heart attack.

"Heart Disease remains the leading cause of death in the US, claiming almost 600,000 lives each year, yet many are unaware that 80% of heart disease is preventable through lifestyle modification," said Dr. Harrington.  Through GuardaHeart's movement "Pledge to SaveThe1" individuals are empowered and equipped to make these critical lifestyle modifications.
