Meet our Three Hypertension Hero Award Honorees

During the NHCR 2023 Annual Summit, Racing to the Top to Bring Down Blood Pressure, we announced our three honorees for our inaugural Hypertension Hero Award.

This award is for individuals or organizations that have demonstrated innovative, collaborative programs or partnerships that addressed inequities in hypertension control. These three awardees were selected from several impressive applications. Please join us in congratulating the California Right Meds Collaborative, Midvale Community Building Community, and Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation.

The Roundtable Opportunity

The destructive nature and complications of uncontrolled hypertension can be avoided with the use of evidence-based interventions and multi-sector engagement and support. The innovative partnerships among the roundtable members highlight how the public and private sector can actively play a role in celebrating, adapting, and expanding these interventions across the United States to achieve health equity.
