Heart Disease and Stroke

Residents in the District of Columbia died at higher rate from preventable heart attacks and strokes than in any other state. ZuriWorks worked with the Department of Health Office of Cancer and Chronic Disease to create a DC Million Hearts strategic plan to establish a baseline number of patients with un-diagnosed hypertension, technical assistance and funding to health care sites. The plan aligns with the national Million Hearts Project, a national initiative aimed to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes. The project reached over 6,000 with undiagnosed hypertension.
