Announcement: Interactive Atlas of Heart Disease and Stroke Available Online

JAMA. 2012;308(9):858. doi:

MMWR. 2012;25:472.

CDC's Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention has created the Interactive Atlas of Heart Disease and Stroke, a new online mapping tool that documents geographic disparities in the burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) at state and county levels. Users can create county-level maps of nine different CVD outcomes, by sex, race/ethnicity, and age group, and can overlay maps with congressional boundaries and locations of health-care facilities. Users also can view maps showing county-level social determinants of health and health services, including poverty, education, and food acquisition determinants.

The Interactive Atlas of Heart Disease and Stroke is available at http://apps.nccd.cdc.gov/dhdspatlas. The atlas is designed to be a valuable tool for public health professionals, researchers, community leaders, and others interested in monitoring CVD trends, setting research priorities, and planning patient services.
