American College of Cardiology


THG contracted with the American College of Cardiology to conduct 55 one-hour interviews with cardiologists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, and cardiac patients with cardiovascular disease in Chicago, Baltimore, Fort Lauderdale, San Francisco and Jackson, MS. The research was conducted in support of Take Action, a 2008 initiative whose goal was to decrease the chances of a secondary coronary event for those who have just recently been discharged from a hospital after being hospitalized with acute coronary syndrome (ACS).

For this study, THG recruited 39 healthcare professionals, 14 of whom had a patient population that was at least 50 percent African-American. We also recruited 16 cardiac patients, 11 of whom were African-American.
