Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA)
The purposes of the WISEWOMAN program are: 1) assuring that cardiovascular screening is provided to women ages 40-64 who are participants in the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP); 2) working with community-based organizations to provide evidence-based prevention services to those women in need of them (through agreements with organizations such as the YMCA, Weight Watchers, and those that provide Diabetes Primary Prevention Programs); 3) improving the management and control of hypertension by integrating innovative health system-based approaches and strengthening community-clinical linkages (such as team-based care and pharmacy medication management programs); and 4) gathering and reporting program related evaluation data, including impact measures.
The WISEWOMAN program focuses on reducing cardiovascular disease risk factors among high-risk women. Addressing risk factors such as high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, obesity, inactivity, diabetes, and smoking greatly reduces a woman’s risk of CVD-related illness and death.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, announces the opportunity to apply for funds to implement the Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation (WISEWOMAN) program. The WISEWOMAN program extends preventive health services provided to women who are participants of the CDC-funded National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP). These extended preventive health services include assessment of cardiovascular risk factors and provision of services to reduce those risks through improved diet, physical activity, tobacco cessation, and medication adherence support. A focus on the health systems and community-clinical linkages that are supportive of these preventive health services is required.
Heart disease and stroke are the first and fourth causes of death among women in the United States. Nearly twice as many women in the United States die of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) as from all forms of cancer, including breast cancer. CVD is preventable, yet it continues to take an enormous toll. For the first time in 2008 more women than men died from cardiovascular disease. Hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, exposure to second-hand smoke, obesity and sedentary life style all contribute to CVD.
The four-year project is expected to begin on July 1, 2013.

- The CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program
The Program is designed to bring to communities evidence-based lifestyle change programs for preventing type 2 diabetes. It is based on the Diabetes Prevention Program research study led by the National Institutes of Health and supported by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The lifestyle program in this study showed that making modest behavior changes, such as improving food choices and increasing physical activity to at least 150 minutes per week, helped participants lose 5% to 7% of their body weight. These lifestyle changes reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% in people at high risk for diabetes. People with prediabetes are more likely to develop heart disease and stroke.
- The CDC Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program
The Program is a key component of the National Diabetes Prevention Program. The purpose of the DPRP is to recognize organizations that have shown that they can effectively deliver a lifestyle change intervention program to prevent type 2 diabetes.
