2017 Virtual Symposium (Non-CME): Ensuring Access to Evidence-Based Therapies in High Risk Special Populations: Statin Intolerance, Racial/Ethnic Minorities and Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Despite advances in medical therapies and new treatment modalities for patients with or at high risk for cardiovascular diseases, health equity and access to care remain significant areas of concern. This symposium will introduce learners to The Access to Health Care Initiative of the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC) who will address these critical issues in a changing health care landscape by revealing disparities faced by minorities and high-risk patients and promulgating solutions to diminished access, especially to newer medications and therapies.
