National Heart Lung and Blood Institute creates national network to study cardiovascular disease
Date:11/28/2007

November 28, 2007 (Oakland, CA) The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute has provided $7.5 million over the next five years to establish a collaborative Cardiovascular Research Network, a national resource that will leverage the collective cardiovascular expertise, diverse community-based study populations and rich electronic data systems within Kaiser Permanente and eight other health plans in the HMO Research Network to better study the epidemiology, prevention, management and outcomes of cardiovascular diseases.
