It is comprised of over 150 universities and organizations across the nation who are collaborating to improve population cardiovascular health and wellbeing. As part of the NIEPCAMH, a Million HeartsÂ® educational module constructed by The Ohio State Universityâ€™s Colleges of Nursing, Medicine and Pharmacy is free and online to assist with education and implementation of the DHHS Million Hearts initiative. The Million HeartsÂ® educational module was designed for transdisciplinary team work by healthcare professionals and healthcare professionalsâ€™ students.
Universities and organizations have accessed and are using the educational module with over 65,000 Americans already screened and/or educated about the ABCSs of the Million Hearts initiative. The goals of the educational module are to educate healthcare professional students and healthcare professionals on the Million HeartsÂ® initiative, increase Million Hearts screenings and education nationwide, and improve population cardiovascular health.
