Association between historical neighborhood redlining and cardiovascular outcomes among veterans

JAMA Network Open

About The Study: In this cohort study of U.S. veterans, the findings suggest that those with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease who reside in historically redlined neighborhoods continue to have a higher prevalence of traditional cardiovascular risk factors and higher cardiovascular risk. Even close to a century after this practice was discontinued, redlining appears to still be adversely associated with adverse cardiovascular events. 

Authors: Sadeer Al-Kindi, M.D., of University Hospitals in Cleveland, and Salil V. Deo, M.D., of Louis Stokes Veteran Affairs Hospital in Cleveland, are the corresponding authors.
