The Association of Socioeconomic Status and Preclinical and Clinical Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors

Experts from Johns Hopkins Children’s Center participated in various sessions and presentations during the 2023 Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting. In this video, Sanjana Boyapalli, research program coordinator for pediatric nephrology, discusses her team’s research on how socioeconomic status (SES) is associated with hypertension and heart disease risks. This study also explores how disease risks are elevated during childhood because of SES. Exploring this topic would assist with developing proactive measures earlier in life to slow chronic disease progression.
