Obesity Content Series with
Medical Alley and the Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association partnered for a three-part content series on obesity. This series included podcast conversations that examined obesity’s impact on cardiovascular outcomes and another that focused on advocacy for patients with obesity. The series culminated with a webinar that looked at obesity’s impact on mental health, which included a panel of experts who offered ways in which we as a community can reexamine the ways in which we talk about the topic with patients. A special thanks to Novo Nordisk for unrestricted grant funding for this series.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, accounting for about 1 in 4 fatalities each year. This sobering statistic has remained largely unchanged for decades within populations of color, particularly for Black Americans.
To help uncover how we’ve arrived at this point and where to go from here, the Medical Alley Association has partnered with the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC) and the Preventative Cardiovascular Nurses Association (PCNA) to start thought-provoking conversations and, ultimately, meaningful change in healthcare.
Below, you can find our three-part content series beginning with two podcasts that set the stage for health disparities in America, and a webinar aimed at finding solutions and greater health equity.
