New Initiative: Cardio Obstetrics
As an outcome of our Steering Committee meeting, the Alliance is pleased to announce our newest initiative addressing Cardio Obstetrics. With over 25% of maternal mortality rates in the United States attributed to cardiovascular disease, the Alliance has identified Cardio Obstetrics as a key strategy in achieving minority cardiovascular health equity. We hope to further research efforts, identify programming that has helped improve cardiovascular health for pregnant women, and increase overall awareness of Cardio Obstetrics.

To gain more insight about the issues and existing work in this space, the NMC Alliance hosted a Twitter Chat in November. To view this chat, or any of our other Twitter Chats, please visit our Wakelet page.
