Cardiovascular Health in Bosnian-Americans: Outreach, Education, and Screening

Description: Saint Louis is home to 60,000 Bosnian-Americans, whose risk and treatment of heart disease has not been well-studied. Differences in language, lifestyle habits, and healthcare systems challenge access and care for this population. This project provides outreach and education through community-based, culturally-sensitive designed screenings.

Community Partnerships:

  • Bosnian Chamber of Commerce
  • Europa Market Import Foods
  • Gateway Healthcare
  • LeMay Internal Medicine
  • Run for Bosnia
  • Saint Louis Bosnians, Inc
  • Saint Louis University Hospital
