Amgen Webinar


Paving the Way for Hispanic Health Equity in Cardiovascular Disease

June 16 at 8pm Eastern | REGISTER HERE

Join Amgen and NAHN for a virtual learning experience, June 16 at 8:00 pm Eastern. This complimentary webinar is open to NAHN nurses, students and interested medical professionals.

While cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death across all ethnic groups in the United States, it is a more significant concern for Hispanic/Latinos. Nearly 60% of middle-aged Latino adults have high cholesterol, yet only half are aware of this.1 Not only is High cholesterol prevalent among Hispanic/Latinos, but awareness and treatment of the condition are severely lacking. Based on this reality, it is clear that efforts are needed to increase high cholesterol and CVD awareness among Hispanics. This webinar will bring together experts who will discuss this issue in detail and raise awareness of cardiovascular risk factors and treatment options for issues like high cholesterol to promote better health among US Hispanic/Latino populations.
J Am Heart Assoc. 2015;4:e001867

- Highlight specific CVD disparities and risk factors (like high cholesterol) that impact Hispanic communities, including atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), where we see reduced awareness affecting Hispanic communities
- Highlight the role that innovative medicines like statins and PCSK inhibitors can play in addressing CVD.
- How to ensure Hispanics have access to screenings, diagnosis, and treatment of CVD
- Highlight key initiatives and collaborations to help address CVD
