Promoting Sodium Reduction Through Evidence-Informed State and Local Policy Interventions
Tuesday, March 10, 2020, 2:30 – 2:50 p.m. ET
Sponsor: CDC Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, the Applied Research and Translation Team

Join us for a 20-minute coffee break presentation on how to determine which evidence-based policy interventions are effective in improving sodium reduction.

Reducing sodium consumption to less than 2,300 mg per day can lower blood pressure, especially among adults with hypertension. Hypertension is a contributing factor for heart disease and stroke, two of the leading causes of death in the United States (US). This presentation will describe the findings from a policy evidence assessment that examined the evidence base for six policy interventions that aim to reduce sodium intake in the US. Future considerations for improving sodium reduction policy intervention implementation will also be discussed. These findings are designed to help state decision makers and public health organizations determine which policy interventions may be useful in their state’s efforts to improve sodium reduction efforts.

Join this event via Adobe Connect and call 855-644-0229, Conference ID: 8247938 at the time indicated above.

Past presentations are available at the Coffee Breaks archive on the CDC Website.
