Cardiovascular Health and Million Hearts Network

Network Overview

Heart disease and stroke are the first- and fourth-leading causes of death, respectively, in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The goal of the Million Hearts initiative, established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by the year 2022.

To address these issues, the Cardiovascular Health and Million Hearts Network is convening an online community of patients, caregivers, physicians and physician practices, health care professionals and community stakeholders to identify and implement solutions to improve cardiac health throughout our region.
