Million Hearts in Colorado: New Tools to Talk About Cholesterol

Hispanics often have high cholesterol, a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Promotores and other community health workers can use this fotonovela, in English or Spanish, to share cholesterol management information with the Spanish-speaking populations they serve. The accompanying promotora guide offers tips, additional activities, reviews, and reminders in both English and Spanish.

Cholesterol management is a key strategy of the  Million Hearts Initiative, an effort to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2017.  Colorado participates in this initiative and you can too. Be one in a million - make your commitment and pledge today.
