Million Hearts Voices

More Voices from the Campaign

Million Hearts® Communication Campaign

The purpose of the Million Hearts® Communication Campaign is to help change the way people think about and embrace managing their heart health.

The solutions for preventing cardiovascular disease seem simple—including understanding your family history, managing high blood pressure and high cholesterol, staying physically active, maintaining a healthy diet and quitting smoking—but they are not always easy. Our vision is a future where all people understand their personal risk for heart disease and stroke, believe in their power to change it, and take steps to protect their heart health—and the health of their families.

This communication campaign is supported by the “Alliance for the Million Hearts Campaign,” a public-private coalition partnering with CDC Foundation to help accelerate the Million Hearts® Initiative toward its goal of preventing one million heart attacks and strokes by 2022. The Alliance is committed to:

  • Starting with people—co-creating a campaign with target audiences to meet people where they are.
     
  • Building bridges—engaging organizations with a track record of collaborating CDC as well as nontraditional partners in private and nonprofit sectors.
     
  • Nurturing innovation—assessing tactics that have worked in the past, but also exploring new methods to inspire action in the realities of today.
