To better understand why, in 2010 two Indian American internists, Alka Kanaya, MD, and Namratha Kandula, MD, MPH, launched the Mediators of Atherosclerosis in South Asians Living in America, or MASALA, prospective cohort study. Drs Kanaya and Kandula spoke with JAMA Medical News Associate Managing Editor Jennifer Abbasi about cardiovascular disease and risk factors among people of South Asian descent.
