There is 1 comment on Replacing the Term ‘Race’ in Risk Predictions for Heart Attacks among Black Patients

  1. there should be terminology that recognizes the stress of being born Black in this country, that gives rise to such things as Heart Attack, high blood pressure and stroke….. since the majority of the people who make up the rules will feel ‘put upon’ if they name this condition…….there is no medical term for this condition as an underlying condition for such things
