Heart Health 1, 2, 3

Heart Health 1, 2, 3, A Comprehensive Cardiovascular Disease Initiative for Diabetes Mellitus, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity

A Comprehensive Cardiovascular Disease Initiative for Diabetes Mellitus, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity.

In 2014, St. Mary’s Health Wagon implemented a Connections for Cardiovascular HealthSMprogram entitled, Heart Health 1,2,3, A Comprehensive Cardiovascular Disease Initiative for Diabetes Mellitus, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity. This program continues today and aims to reduce the risk of a cardiac event occurring in individuals living with chronic disease and brings healthcare to patients. This program identifies individuals with metabolic syndrome, diabetes mellitus or nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and correlates the risk for cardiovascular disease related to these afflictions, therefore, minimizing and preventing the risk of a cardiac event through clinical measures and behavioral measures.

With the support of the AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation, the Health Wagon has reached over 15,000 patients and tracked over 2,500 patients from 2014-2018 through the Heart Health 1,2,3 program.

A toolkit was created to share our program success and act as a guide for healthcare professionals who aim to alleviate the burden of chronic disease, especially as it relates to cardiovascular health. This toolkit is intended for but isn’t limited to nonprofit professionals, public health officials, and healthcare practitioners working in rural underserved areas. The program and its key components may be adapted/replicated for use in other cardiovascular health programs.

Funding for this Connections for Cardiovascular HealthSM program is provided by the AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation.
