Dear CVH Network Members, 
It was a pleasure to meet so many of you in person at the March 1815/1817 recipient meeting and especially at our CVH Network Ancillary Session. The CVH Council is working hard to represent your interests to CDC Division of Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention and NACDD. We look forward to updating you on peer exchange and technical assistance opportunities this year. As always, please let me know if there are specific needs you have or ideas for how the CVH Council can assist you in your work.
As you know, the grantee meeting presentation slides are available until tomorrow, Tuesday, April 30. Please be sure to download them now. If there are any you would like us to post on the NACDD website to access in the future, please let me know.

We look forward to hearing from you!
