We are pleased to announce the next session of Public Health Grand Rounds, “Million Hearts 2022: A Compelling Call to Action” which will be held on Tuesday, February 20, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. (ET). You may watch this session in person or via live webcast from CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. Open captions are provided.
Although heart disease and stroke death rates are leveling off after 40 years of steady decline in the United States, cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the nation’s leading cause of death for men and women of all races and ethnicities. It is the greatest contributor to racial disparities in life expectancy and in some populations, CVD is increasing.
Join us for this session of Grand Rounds to hear what Tennessee is doing to create healthy communities. Learn what practices can do to improve heart health by managing the ABCS, and find out what can be done to prevent a second heart attack. Million Hearts® 2022 will present its actionable priorities to get and keep people healthy.
