Inequities Persist in Women's Cardiovascular Care
One of the ways to improve care has been through legislation, says Dankle.
Senators Debbie Stabenow, D-MI, and Lisa Murkowski, R-AK, have reintroduced a measure that would, among other things, require the Department of Health and Human Services to submit an annual report to Congress on the quality and access of care for women with cardiovascular disease.
That, says Dankle, is a beginning toward resolving the inequities of cardiovascular care for women. Still, there is a long way to go.
