About Coronary Artery Disease Health Equity Fund
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is an impedance or blockage of one or more of the major blood vessels that supply the heart, preventing blood, oxygen and nutrients from reaching critical regions of the body. Changes in the arterial wall are caused by the accumulation of lipids, calcium, blood components, carbohydrates and fibrous tissue in the endothelial lining referred to as plaque or atherosclerosis. When the blood flow to the heart’s muscles is limited, referred to as ischemia, it can be symptomatic or asymptomatic, this may occur with exertion or at rest, and depending on obstruction severity and the rapidity of development may culminate in a myocardial infarction (heart attack). CAD can weaken the heart muscle and often leads to heart failure and arrhythmias.
Our Health Equity Funds were developed to get assistance to those people and places who need it the most. Developed using the CDC’s Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) and CDC Disease Incidence data, our Health Equity Funds serve people living in 220 counties across the United States that have been identified by the CDC as having the highest social vulnerability scores and are burdened with high rates of chronic diseases. The Health Equity Funds are designed to specifically provide support to eligible patients living in one of the 220 counties covered by the funds, which is verified using the zip code of the patient’s home address. All other eligibility requirements, and fund operation, are the same as our general funds.
