Flash and JavaScript are required for this feature.

In this video, we mention that the Framingham Risk Model was tested on diverse cohorts. The original Framingham Risk Model was actually computed by a different sort of regression, called a Cox Proportional Hazards Model. This method is different but related to logistic regression, and it will return a similar estimate of 10-year CHD risk.
