Like many other illnesses and aliments, studies show that African Americans are more susceptible to heart disease than any other race.  In fact, according to the American Heart and American Stroke Associations, about 45% of black men and 49% of black women have (CVD) cardiovascular disease. This resulted in more than 94,000 deaths in 2009.  But why are the numbers so high among African Americans?  Join Another View Producer, Lisa Godley and Another View on Health Co-Host, Dr. Keith Newby as they explore the causes and cures surrounding African Americans and Cardiovasular Diseases, particularly when it's induced by stress.  Also joining the discussion is Jonathan Smith, PhD and CEO of the Wellness Collaborative and Ulysses Robinson, a heart patient will be on hand to share his experience.  Join us for the next Another View on Health this Friday, March 27th  at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
