State Teams Announced to Attend Workshop Supporting Pharmacist and Physician Collaboration

NACDD, in coordination with CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, is pleased to announce the state teams chosen to participate in a learning program designed to accelerate team-based care to manage hypertension using the Pharmacists' Patient Care Process and Collaborative Practice Agreements. States are Arizona, Georgia, Iowa, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming. These state health department and pharmacy partner teams will attend an in-person workshop on May 24-25, 2017 in Atlanta, GA and several follow up webinars to gain the information needed to host trainings in their states for pharmacists and primary care physicians.

Lessons learned from this project will be shared during a September 2017 fireside chat. More information about the state teams and the resources available to them, are posted here.
