Despite advances in technology, cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death, disability, and healthcare costs in the U.S. Yet, there is a tremendous gap in accurate cardiovascular risk prediction and prevention, particularly in racial/ethnic minorities.
The overall goal of this study is to address gaps in knowledge about CVD prediction and treatment in understudied racial/ethnic minority populations. The study will utilize the electronic health record data from the CASPER study, an established NHLBI-funded cohort enriched with disaggregated Hispanic and Asian patients.
