Million Hearts® is a national initiative co-led by CDC and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that aims to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes within 5 years.
The CDC Foundation is pleased to work with the following partners on the Million Hearts® campaign.
Alliance for the Million Hearts® Campaign
The Alliance for the Million Hearts® Campaign is a public-private coalition partnering with the CDC Foundation to help accelerate the Million Hearts® initiative toward its goal of preventing 1 million heart attacks and strokes.
