How Cancer Can Impact Our Hearts: The Intersection of Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease, and Health Inequities

Katya Ravid, DSc, Barbara E. Corkey Endowed Professor of Medicine and founding director of the Evans Center for Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research, and Boston University Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Office, along with Vipul Chitalia, MD, PhD, associate professor of medicine; and Michael Gaziano, MD, and professor of medicine; explore the intersection of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and health inequities in an enlightening evening of groundbreaking research and conversations representing the newly created American Heart Association Center: Cancer-Associated Thromboembolism as Affected by Health Disparities (CAT-HD) at Boston University School of Medicine.

Data from the Veteran Health Administration and Boston Medical Center is being used to study the increased risk people with cancer have for developing venous thromboembolism (VTE), a blood clot that starts in the vein. These three dynamic investigators will take the stage, each providing integrative perspectives, followed by a discussion moderated by Emelia J. Benjamin, MD, ScM a professor of medicine and epidemiology with expertise in health disparities research and education. 

This program is free, thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
