ACC Partners with Million Hearts

Million Hearts The American College of Cardiology is a partner in the Million Hearts campaign, a national initiative to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over the next five years. ACC supports the Million Hearts ABCS:
  • Aspirin for people at risk
  • Blood pressure control,
  • Cholesterol management,
  • Smoking cessation
ACC will employ its outpatient registry and consumer-oriented resources to help reach the shared goal of reducing heart disease. The ACC's PINNACLE Registry currently collects data on patient interactions such as aspirin prescriptions, blood pressure measures, smoking cessation status and consulting, lipid panels, and diabetes screening.

Additionally, ACC's patient-focused CardioSmart National Care Initiative which offers online information on heart disease as well as everyday strategies for healthy living, is a platform that can be used to educate those living with or at risk for heart disease.
