ORIGINS OF THE NMC ALLIANCE

Understanding the Need...

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death for all US populations

As America grows more diverse, ethnic and racial minorities are plagued by higher prevalence and CVD mortality rates.

Currently, there is no central space for diverse groups to come together for focused, open, and constructive dialogue on shared best practices and how to solve the CVD problem.

An opportunity exists to address documented health, socioeconomic, cultural, access to care, and health literacy efforts.

African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American and Asian/Pacific
Islander communities may face unique cardiovascular challenges.

A central space to fill a critical gap for
minority cardiovascular health.

The Make Well Known Foundation established the National Minority Cardiovascular
(NMC) Alliance, a collaborative initiative that will help fill a critical gap in understanding
minority cardiovascular health.

 

The NMC Alliance provides a central space for diverse groups to pursue meaningful dialogue and solutions related to cardiovascular disease disparities faced by people in minority populations.
 

The NMC Alliance’s nationally renowned thought-leaders have been assembled to develop an action agenda in support of those living with cardiovascular disease who are of African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American and Asian/Pacific Islander descent. Together, the goal is to strengthen the Alliance’s constituents through shared purpose, increased capacity, and expanded resources.

Together, we are working to better understand the similarities and uniquenesses of genetics, culture, and socioeconomic status, in order to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease and manage the health of these populations.
