Statement of Need

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for adults in the US. However, patients from minority populations with cardiovascular disease have disproportionately poor health outcomes and are particularly vulnerable to health disparities. Racial inequities in health also result in higher risk-burden in minority groups for metabolic syndromes such as Type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes, which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Health disparities in cardiometabolic care predominantly affect African American/Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, low socioeconomic status (SES) populations and other minority groups. It is imperative that clinicians recognize the impact of health inequities and inequalities on outcomes in minority patients with cardiometabolic disorders and address unconscious bias and disparities in care.

This CME Outfitters Live and OnDemand will focus on identifying structural and social determinants of health (SDOH) and clinician biases that place minority patients at risk for poorer outcomes in cardiovascular disease and implementing health care practices to improve these outcomes.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify structural and social determinants of health (SDOH) that place African American/Black, Hispanic and other minority populations at risk for poor outcomes in cardiovascular disease.
  • Recognize the impact of bias and health inequity on outcomes of patients with cardiometabolic disorders.
  • Implement health care practices targeted at improving outcomes for minority patients with metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from the Johnson & Johnson Institute and the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies
