Senior Writer Emily Bazar appeared on Valley Public Radio's Valley Edition program today to discuss her in-depth report on high rates of heart procedures in certain California communities. Bazar published her two-part series in the San Francisco Chronicle. She found that heart procedures occurred with high frequency in the Central Valley. Residents in Lindsay (Tulare County) had angioplasty at four times the state average. Corcoran (Kings County) residents had five times the state rate for angiography.
