AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Does adding environmental exposures at the primary residence to cardiovascular risk scores improve risk prediction?

The American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease risk score is a well-known and widely used risk score that provides 10-year risk estimates. However, this score does not account for environmental exposures as experienced at a person's primary residence, many of which are strongly associated with cardiovascular disease. Using All of Us we can evaluate if measurements of environmental pollution at the home improves risk estimates.
