Campaign Spotlight

There is a paucity of cardiovascular health subgroup data for our minority patients and this likely contributes to the disparities in outcomes. The National Minority Cardiovascular (NMC) Alliance and its partners are working diligently to fill that data gap through the dissemination of a confidential Patient Experience Survey and a companion Provider Survey. The Provider survey is designed to collect information on what healthcare professionals perceive as the challenges confronting minority cardiovascular patients. All eligible providers who complete this 10-minute survey will receive a $15 Amazon gift card.
