Innovative State and Local Public Health Strategies to Prevent and Manage Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke

This 5-year cooperative agreement, which began in October 2018, funds 21 state health departments, large city and county health departments, and a consortia of city and county health departments. Using CDC support, these health departments are working to develop new and innovative approaches to increase the reach and effectiveness of evidence-based public health strategies in populations and communities with a high burden of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
