Excerpt
As the Nation’s Prevention Agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is committed to reducing the burden of heart disease – the leading cause of death and a major contributor to disability in the United States. Deaths from heart disease are largely preventable, and with targeted public health efforts we can alleviate much of the heavy burden of this disease. To meet this challenge, CDC works to closely monitor geographic and temporal trends in heart disease among racial and ethnic groups, strengthen the delivery of primary and secondary preventive health services to all such groups, and implement policy changes that support heart-healthy environments for all residents of the United States. CDC’s Associate Director for Women’s Health and Associate Director for Minority Health serve as the Agency’s focal points for coordinating activities and monitoring programs to meet these objectives.
