Heart Disease Awareness Month
Heart Disease in Disadvantaged Populations 

In the U.S. every adult is at risk for heart disease. Heart disease is and has been the leading cause of death in America. Every year more than 385,000 people die from coronary heart disease and about three times as many people have heart attacks. The most vulnerable populations are minorities, low income persons, and those with limited education. To learn more about heart health issues, click here.
