Asian Heart & Vascular Center

The UCSF Asian Heart and Vascular Center is a cardiovascular care hub for the Asian community. In particular, we respect the cultural differences that distinguish the Asian population. Patients also can receive information and language-appropriate educational materials about heart disease and prevention. Additionally, the center participates in research to further understand the metabolic and genetic differences of the Asian community.

The Asian Heart and Vascular Center was established in 2006 to serve the Asian community, the fastest-growing segment of the San Francisco population. Cardiovascular disease and stroke are the leading causes of death among Asian Americans, according to the American Heart Association. In San Francisco, Asian Americans make up about a third of the population. As the Asian population increases, so does the need for cardiovascular specialists who can understand, communicate about and treat heart disease.
