Master Class

A initiative of the Make Well Known Foundation is the National Minority Cardiovascular Alliance (NMC Alliance), which is committed to closing the gap in cardiovascular health outcomes across the country.  This is being done by collaboratively engaging in research and activities that will consider and highlight how culture and ethnicity should be reflected when designing strategies, interventions or other activities, in order to better serve underrepresented populations and reduce cardiovascular disease disparities.  

Considering the NMC Alliance focus on cardiovascular issues that burden various racial/ethnic underserved minority populations, the Alliance has been funded to prepare and launch an effective training program, or
Master Class, to support provider communication about dyslipidemia with their minority patients.
Goals of this program include:

  • Understanding barriers to treatment of dyslipidemia for minority patients, both from the provider and patient perspective

  • Assessing barriers in communicating about the condition and need for treatment

  • Understanding tactics and tools that might support stronger, more effective communication

  • Developing and launching a training program to provide the information and strategies required to optimize communication with minority patients to support treatment of dyslipidemia
