Obstetricians/Gynecologists and Cardiovascular Disease in African American and Hispanic Women

The aim of this study is to examine obstetrician-gynecologists’ (OBGYNs) knowledge, screening, and management of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in their female patients, but more specifically in African American and Hispanic women. CVD is the leading cause of death and disability in women with African American and Hispanic women being at an even greater risk for CVD and several of its risk factors. The purpose of this study is to assess whether OBGYNs are knowledgeable about these disparities and whether they tailor their medical services accordingly.
