Dr Warrick presented his speech at the TEDxUniversityofMississippi event in February, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. The speech has been viewed by a global audience of over 20,000 and recognized as a TED top performer. 

Dr Bishop said the talk was designed to spread the word that current heart attack risk assessment is failing some people and how we can bring precision to individual risk assessment. 

“A number of years ago, a man came into my office for a heart check. Based on the current assessment at the time, I gave him a 6% chance of heart attack in the next five years. In medical practice, this is considered low risk and not worthy of therapy commencement,” said Dr. Bishop.

Two years later, he was dead on the side of a road, after suffering a heart attack during an event.
