CVH Area Network 

NACDD launched the CVH Area Network (CAN) in January 2021 to build connections within eight geographic areas. Quarterly calls are held to facilitate sharing of promising ideas and state-developed resources among those working on heart disease and stroke prevention strategies. These calls happen quarterly and are led by peer liaisons to support sharing successes, opportunities, challenges, and resources, with an emphasis on program implementation. 

Evaluation Peer Network 

The Evaluation Peer Network (EPN) is comprised of evaluator and epidemiologists involved in programs funded by CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention and Division of Diabetes Translation. The EPN meets bimonthly and discusses issues related to methodology, reporting, and dissemination of data and evaluation results.
