Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) and Stroke are the nation’s Number 1 and 4 killers, with African Americans, Hispanics, and women in general affected disproportionately.
A person’s race, sex, or ethnicity shouldn’t put them at higher risk for developing CVD. High Blood Pressure in African Americans is of higher prevalence globally, and Blacks lose 1/3 of their potential life-years compared to Whites due to CVD. On average, Hispanic women are likely to develop heart disease 10 years earlier than other women.
This event strives to increase outreach and engagement opportunities for awareness and to provide education and tools for action, enlisting the individual and communities to improve cardiovascular health by removing barriers and providing tools to live healthier lives.
Given the diversity of Harlem, the program will target this more at-risk community with women being the primary focus because of their elevated risk and typical leadership role in their family’s health.
