About The Study: Among predominantly low-income individuals in the southeastern United States, rurality was associated with an increased risk of heart failure among women and Black men, which persisted after adjustment for cardiovascular risk factors and socioeconomic status. This inequity points to a need for additional emphasis on primary prevention of heart failure among rural populations.
