Cardiovascular Health (CVH) Council
The CVH Council is composed of:
- a three-member Executive Team,
- five evaluation and epidemiologist co-leads of the Evaluation Peer Network,
- eight CVH Area Network Liaisons,
- representatives from other NACDD Councils engaged in related priority areas including diabetes, GIS, and health equity, and
- CDC Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP) representatives.
The CVH Network is a virtual network of all CDC-funded state and local partners and their contractors working with 1815 and 1817, Category B: Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Management or 1816, WISEWOMAN program.
Both the CVH Council and CVH Network are supported by the NACDD CVH Team, which receives financial support from CDC to promote peer networking and sharing best practices among CDC-funded health departments.
NACDD launched the CVH Area Network (CAN) in January 2021 to build connections within eight areas. Quarterly calls are held to facilitate sharing of promising ideas and state-developed resources among those working on 1815 and 1817 Category B strategies.
The CVH Council Orientation Packet is available here.
