Introducing PCORnet: An Emerging Resource for Cardiovascular Epidemiology and Outcomes Research
March 1, 4:00 PM
We are excited to convene what we hope will be a platform for an exciting collaborative process. The Cardiovascular Health Collaborative Research Group was created within PCORnet to catalyze collaborative PCORnet research that will lead to improvements in cardiovascular health that are meaningful to patients. Our near-term objective is to stimulate several PCORnet research projects that achieve PCORnet Study designation and lead to grant applications submitted during 2016. We hope that you will join us to initiate this exciting process.

Simulation modeling to inform future public health interventions to decrease the burden of cardiovascular disease in the United States
March 1, 4:30 PM
Presented by: DHDSP/NCCDPHP/CDC
This session will present preliminary findings of a project that includes national experts in CVD simulation modeling, including staff from the CVD Policy Model, to determine the key CVD risk factors that the DHDSP and its Million Hearts® partners should continue to focus on or begin targeting starting in 2017 and the expected range of possible events prevented over the following five and ten years if those risk factors are effectively addressed. Attendees at this session will have the opportunity to provide important feedback to assist public health professionals in planning for future CVD prevention programs and interventions.
