There are racial disparities in the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and Black adults are at a significantly higher risk.
Members at the BPAO came together to compile knowledge that explores ways we can shrink those disparities through solutions like preventative care.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
Recognize important considerations for disease prevention and management in the black population
Identify the features of patients at risk of cardiovascular-related diseases in order to implement primary prevention strategies
Evaluate patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and other cardiovascular diseases for the red flag symptoms of modifiable causes, such as cardiac amyloidosis
