Spread the word about Million Hearts® 2022!

Million Hearts® 2022

Million Hearts® 2022 is a national initiative co-led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to prevent one million heart attacks and strokes within five years. The initiative focuses on a small set of priorities selected for their impact on heart disease, stroke, and related conditions.
  • Keeping people healthy with public health efforts that promote healthier levels of sodium consumption, increased physical activity, and decreased tobacco use.
  • Optimizing care by using teams, health information technology, and evidence-based processes to improve the ABCS (Aspirin when appropriate, Blood pressure control, Cholesterol management, and Smoking cessation), increase use of cardiac rehab, and enhance heart-healthy behaviors.
  • Improving outcomes for priority populations selected based on data showing a significant cardiovascular health disparity, evidence of effective interventions, and partners ready to act. Populations include Blacks/African Americans, 35- to 64-year-olds, people who have had a heart attack or stroke, and people with mental illness or substance use disorders.
We at CDPHE are proud to partner with Million Hearts® to help prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2022. Learn more about Million Hearts® 2022 by visiting
