NHMA Cardiovascular Disease Campaign on Cholesterol and Post-Heart Attack Patients

NHMA is currently looking for physicians who treat cardiovascular patients in minority communities to participate in our video series. Please fill out this form if you are interested: http://bit.ly/NHMACVDVideoSeries.

NHMA has made strides in its Hispanic education project through the following 2020 activities:

  • NHMA held virtual COVID-19 briefing sessions on treating CVD and chronic disease patients that saw over 500 participants on Zoom and Facebook Live
  • NHMA held a virtual congressional briefing, "HHS Response to COVID-19: Efforts for Latinos with Heart and Lung Disease." Speakers included: Senator Bob Menendez (NJ); Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25); Gladys Velarde, MD, FACC, FAHA; and Jerome Adams, MD, MPH. Participants included several congressional offices, their staff, and national advocates, as will as physicians and other health professionals.

NHMA has continued social media and using our physician videos to increase awareness, especially with patients who have had an MI or have high cholesterol. In October, NHMA will be holding a Cardiovascular Disease Scientific Symposium on March 20th from 12-2 pm ET at the NHMA 24th Annual Conference (at the Events Section of this website) and state advocacy meetings in California and New York on heart disease policy in 2021.
