Preventing A Million Heart Attacks and Strokes: A Turning Point for Impact
Tuesday, September 16, 2014, at 1pm EDT.
Heart attacks and strokes contribute to the almost 800,000 deaths from cardiovascular disease each year. The trauma to families and communities is devastating; the cost to the US economy is nearly $1 billion each day in medical costs and lost productivity. To achieve sustainable prevention, the Department of Health and Human Services launched Million Hearts®, a national initiative to prevent one million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. Million Hearts® focuses on increasing the number of communities who go smoke-free, decreasing sodium in the food supply, and eliminating trans-fat. In addition to changes to our environment, Million Hearts® calls for changes in the health care system that will produce better performance in the ABCS (Aspirin when appropriate, Blood pressure control, Cholesterol management, Smoking cessation). Join us as we hear about the progress that has been made, along with the work that is still needed to reach the goal of preventing one million heart attacks and strokes by 2017.
