Closing the Knowledge to Action Gap in Indigenous heart disease and stroke
Improved cardiovascular health will make a critical contribution to reducing the difference in life expectancy between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
Dr Katzenellenbogens program of research covers three broad cardiovascular diseases in which disparities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians are very high: ischaemic heart disease, stroke and rheumatic heart disease (RHD).
