About Close the Gap
Close the Gap is a health equity initiative from Boston Scientific that educates and empowers healthcare providers to reduce health inequities among underserved populations.
Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer of Black Americans.1
We’re committed to making sure that people in your community don’t experience gaps like this.
Why We’re Invested
We believe that collaborative approaches to understanding and addressing health disparities are needed, and Boston Scientific is committed to helping you close treatment gaps. In supporting your efforts to create more equal access to healthcare in your community, we aim to address disparities in how minority groups learn about high-risk diseases and access life-changing care.
