New Resources from the Addressing Health Disparities in Hypertension Control Fireside Chat

Posted By Julia Schneider, Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Helpful resources are now available from the February 2017 fireside chat on Addressing Health Disparities in Hypertension Control. NACDD worked with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) to host the fireside chat about their development of cultural competency training for medical providers and their work with trained team leads, local clinical coordinators, and a physician champion to improve hypertension control. As part of an ASTHO project, NACDD highlighted DHEC’s work in a blog post on the effort to improve blood pressure control activities in clinical practices. An issue brief on addressing health disparity in hypertension control and a success story on the South Carolina work are also available on the NACDD CVH webpages.

In another aspect of the ASTHO blog series, national partners shared insights with ASTHO on the ways they address decision-making, policy opportunities, and skill-building related to the public health workforce. The responses shared by Marti Macchi, NACDD Senior Director of Programs, and the other partner organizations, are posted here.
