CDC Releases County-Level Atlas of Heart Disease Hospitalizations

The CDC recently released the 2010 Atlas of Heart Disease Hospitalizations Among Medicare Beneficiaries, its first atlas showing hospitalization rates for heart disease at the county level. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US. These new maps chart wide disparities based on race/ethnicity and geographic location.
