HHS To Provide $112M in Grants To Fight Heart Disease
On Tuesday, HHS announced that it will provide $112 million in grants to help physicians at smaller practices combat heart disease, which is the top cause of death in the U.S. The funding will go toward creating regional expert groups to assist 5,000 small-practice providers who serve about eight million patients. Small practices generally do not have as many resources as larger organizations.
