Cardiovascular Research Core

Overview of Services

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) such as heart disease, heart failure, and stroke remain the number one cause of death in the U.S. for both men and women. CVD affect Delawareans at a rate significantly above the national average. According to the American Heart Association (1), Delaware is not even in the top half (i.e., better half) of states for coronary heart disease (CHD) age-adjusted death rates. More troubling is that Delaware ranks 39th of 50 states in CHD mortality for women. Hypertension rates are similarly worse than the national averages. CVD such as CHD are largely preventable, and is related to risk factors prevalent in the state and region such as poor diet, obesity, physical inactivity, and other modifiable behaviors.
