  • Description:
    The National Forum for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention was established in 2003 to implement A Public Health Action Plan to Prevent Heart Disease and Stroke (Action Plan). The Action Plan provides a comprehensive public health strategy and a framework to guide health practitioners’ and policy makers’ action in heart disease and stroke prevention. The National Forum involves participants from more than 80 national and international organizations representing public and private health care, faith, advocacy, academic, and policy organizations . The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials were the lead partners in developing the Action Plan and continue to participate in the leadership of the National Forum. Throughout the year, National Forum participants work in one or more of seven implementation groups: Action Priorities, Communications, Monitoring and Evaluation, Organizational Capacity, Policy Research, Public Health Leadership and Partnership, and Regional and Global Collaboration . The full body of the National Forum meets annually. Each of the Implementation Groups meets monthly via conference calls and in person twice per year.
