EvidenceNOW is an AHRQ grant initiative dedicated to helping thousands of small- and medium-sized primary care practices across the country use the latest evidence to improve the heart health of millions of Americans. This initiative aligns with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Million Hearts®, a national effort to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2017.

EvidenceNOW established seven regional cooperatives composed of public and private health partnerships and multidisciplinary teams of experts, including North Carolina. For more information on our team in North Carolina, please visit the Hearth Health Now! website.
