The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD), in coordination with CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP), is hosting the next fireside chat focused on a unique project designed to advance team-based care. Fireside Chats provide an interactive format for state health agencies to hear from content experts on a number of topics pertaining to cardiovascular health and 1305/1422 priority areas.

On September 27, 2017, this fireside chat will focus on 1) the use of the pharmacists’ patient care process and collaborative practice agreements, and 2) the experiences of states participating in a workshop-based project designed to implement new resources from CDC:
The panel discussion will be moderated by Jeff Durthaler, Population Health Consultant Pharmacist for CDC, and will feature Ben Berrett Manager, Pharmacy Primary Care Services at University of Utah Health and Hannah Herold, Chronic Disease Prevention Program Manager with the Wyoming Department of Health. The project faculty who have guided participants will also be available to share their perspective: Lindsay Kunkle, Director of Practice & Science Affairs, American Pharmacists Association; Marialice S. Bennett, Professor Emeritus, The Ohio State University, College of Pharmacy; Troy Trygstad, Consultant; and Krystalyn Weaver, Vice President, Policy and Operations, National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations.

From NACDD CVH Leadership Team
Recording of the September, 2017 Conversation with Dr. Janet Wright, Executive Director, Million Hearts 2022, is now available

The CVD network hosted a webinar for its members entitled “CVH Network Call on Million Hearts 2022: The Role of State Health Departments” on 9/19/17. It centered on the Centers for Disease and Control, Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention’s Million Hearts® Initiative. This national initiative began September 2011 with the aim of preventing 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. The initiative is continuing efforts to implement evidence-based strategies to save lives, money, and improve access and quality of care by changing health systems.

During the call Dr. Wright provided an overview of Million Hearts 2022 and discussed some of the roles of state health departments. A critical role is partnering: collaborating with and convening partners. Utah’s Kelly Robinson reported on the state efforts to improve clinical care through blood pressure management within its Midtown health clinics. Laura Heinrich from Indiana discussed the state’s efforts to use evidence-based clinical protocols within its Eskenazi Health system.

Both are excellent examples of the work happening in the field and demonstrates how these Million Hearts efforts and targeted 1305/1422 funded strategies serve to both leverage and synergize the collective work of the Division for Heart Disease and Prevention.
