Initiative Celebrates Black Excellence in Cardiovascular Research, Raises Awareness of Cardiovascular Diseases in Black Community

Vermont Business Magazine Monday marks the first day of a week-long international virtual event called #BlackinCardioWeek. This social media-based initiative was co-organized by Debora Kamin Mukaz, PhD, a postdoctoral associate conducting cardiovascular research at UVM's Larner College of Medicine. Originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kamin Mukaz received her undergraduate degree from Luther College in Iowa and PhD from the University of Delaware. Her research focuses on defining biomarkers related to incidence of hypertension and diabetes, with an emphasis on studying racial disparities.
