American Heart Association Rapid Access Journal Report

The difference was based on whether or not they had health insurance.

“These findings have important implications for preventing disparities in cardiovascular outcomes within the growing U.S. Hispanic/Latino population,” said study lead author Dima M. Qato, Pharm.D., M.P.H., Ph.D., assistant professor of pharmacy systems, outcomes and policy at the University of Illinois in Chicago.

Joshua Brollier, a Northeast High school graduate now living in Chicago, will spend his Christmas vacation in the Gaza Strip, participating in the Gaza Freedom March along with Alice Walker and score of other notables.

Departing from Cairo, Egypt, Brollier and more than 1,000 international activists will caravan into Gaza to witness the devastation from last year’s Israeli invasion. On Dec. 31, they will join a projected 50,000 Palestinians in a non-violent march from Northern Gaza to the Erez/Israeli border to call for the border to open. “We are moved by the tremendous response to this march and are heartened that the global community has not forgotten us,” said Haidar Eid, a member of the Organizing Committee inside Gaza.
