Interestingly, better treatment of CVD and longer life expectancy have led to an increase in the prevalence of HF (Vasan & Wilson, 2007).

High mortality rates among African Americans may be explained in part by treatment-seeking behaviors (McSweeney, Lefler, Fischer, Naylor, & Evans, 2007). McSweeney and colleagues (2007) found that Black women (n = 509) with MI symptoms seek treatment in a less timely manner than White women (n = 500). Racial disparities may be more related to socioeconomic status (SES) factors, such as poverty, than race itself. Poverty is a common occurrence in rural populations, thus disparities in SES along the rural–urban continuum may explain some of the crude mortality rate differentiation as well as CVD risk factors seen in rural populations (Taylor, Hughes, & Garrison, 2002).
