Cardiovascular Disease in MSM

This study will retrospectively analyze disparities in indicators of cardiovascular disease (i.e., hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, dyslipidemias, stroke, and inflammatory biomarkers) and risk and protective factors (i.e., smoking, alcohol use, physical activity, diet, access to healthcare, drug use,…

Scientific Questions Being Studied

This study will retrospectively analyze disparities in indicators of cardiovascular disease (i.e., hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, dyslipidemias, stroke, and inflammatory biomarkers) and risk and protective factors (i.e., smoking, alcohol use, physical activity, diet, access to healthcare, drug use, intimate partner violence, sex work) among sexual minority individuals registered in the “All of Us” Database.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Population Health
  • Educational

Scientific Approaches

We will identify prevalence rates of indicators of cardiovascular disease among the population of interest using frequencies. We will model outcomes using regression methods.

Anticipated Findings

We anticipate that MSM will present with higher prevalence of cardiovascular outcomes, given the minority stress components.

Demographic Categories of Interest

  • Sexual Orientation
  • Education Level
  • Income Level
