Sharing Prevention Innovations in Cardio-Vascular Disease
Friday, February 1 & Saturday, February 2, 2019 • Hilton St. Louis Airport
Heart Disease and Stroke account for about 30% of all deaths in Missouri and pose a considerable challenge to the health of all Missourians. To provide state-level support to the vision of the national Million Hearts® initiative, a voluntary network of key stakeholders established the Missouri Million Hearts (MO MH) Partnership in 2012. The MO MH partnership is committed to addressing the needs of underserved and high-risk communities burdened by the adverse effects of cardiovascular disease in Missouri. The Third Annual Missouri Million Hearts Conference is a showcase of innovative efforts that align with the mission of the MO MH partnership. The intended audience for the conference includes physicians, nurses, pharmacists, public health officials, health educators, community health workers, community organizations and the general public who are interested in preventing cardiovascular disease and learning about innovative evidence-based strategies designed to ameliorate the burden of heart disease and stroke in their community. Presenters from diverse stakeholder groups will focus on the role of the Healthcare and Public health systems, the community, and the patient in addressing cardiovascular disease and the associated risk factors.
