CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds on Million Hearts

CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds that will take place Tuesday, February 21, 1 – 2 pm ET. Dr. Janet Wright, executive director for Million Hearts, will be joined by a panel of experts. They will examine heart disease and stroke prevention interventions, present Million Hearts activities currently underway in communities such as San Diego and New York City, share public and private sector collaborations, and discuss efforts to unite existing prevention efforts with innovative programs that will ultimately help Americans live longer, healthier, more productive lives.
The CDC is also interested in hearing about work at the state and local levels to support this national goal to prevent one million heart attacks and strokes, including efforts in the following areas, such as:
  • Programmatic support – trainings, presentations, educational outreach, success stories
  • Policy support – supporting environmental and systems changes, evidence for action
  • Communications support – media events/releases, conferences, webinars, blogs
  • Science – articles, publications, studies
  • Evaluation and measurement – data sources, surveys, measurement harmonization initiatives
