Social factors major determinant of stroke, CVD risk

​Various socioeconomic determinants predispose patients to developing CVD and stroke, especially in the United States, according to a presentation at the International Stroke Conference.
“The United States is a relatively unique example of representing a lot of variation in social conditions and therefore a lot of variation in disease,” Edward P. Havranek, MD, professor of medicine-cardiology at University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver, said in the presentation.
