National Minority Cardiovascular Alliance | Data Gaps Affect Health Outcomes for South Asians
National Minority Cardiovascular Alliance Steering Committee member, Latha Palaniappan, MD, MS, FAHA, FACC, FACP, from Stanford University School of Medicine, knows first hand that health disparities encompass more than statistics, they affect lives, families, and communities.
From early on, Dr. Palaniappan knew she wanted to make a difference in the health of Asian/Pacific Islander groups. She has found that the ability to deliver personalized, precision health care is dependent on data, and that specific data is lacking for minority groups. In fact, current data doesn't adequately reflect the extent to which minority populations are affected by cardiovascular disease.
