Paving the Way for Hispanic Health Equity in Cardiovascular Disease
Join Amgen & NAHN for a complimentary virtual learning experience, June 16 at 8:00 pm ET.

While cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death across all ethnic groups in the U.S., 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. 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 to promote better health among US Hispanic/Latino populations.

Goals of the webinar:
-Highlight specific CVD disparities and risk factors (like high cholesterol) that impact Hispanic communities, including atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), where we see reduced awareness
- Highlight the role that innovative medicines like statins and PCSK inhibitors can play in addressing CVD.
- Discuss how to ensure Hispanics have access to screenings, diagnosis, and treatment of CVD
- Highlight key initiatives and collaborations to help address CVD
- Discuss how organizations like NAHN can help advance health equity for heart health patients
-Hear from nurses who are at the forefront of developing tools for healthcare providers to improve patient outcomes for CVD patients
-Learn about the role that nurses can play in advocating for cardiovascular health equity
