Help us ensure that everyone in Nevada has the opportunity to live a longer, healthier life.
A Culture of Health
Imagine a Nevada where healthy choices are equitable and accessible. Where the healthy choice is the easy choice. We are fighting heart diseases and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of all Americans, by making the places we live, learn, work, play, pray and heal healthier.

Promoting Native American health in northern Nevada
In northern Nevada’s Native American community, where hypertension and diabetes rates are disproportionately high, our Check.Change.Control. initiative has emerged as a lifeline. The evidence-based hypertension management program enables participants to take ownership of their cardiovascular health through blood pressure self-monitoring. Over the past year, our team has worked with health care leader Renown to scale the program and raise awareness about hypertension risk factors, prevention and management.
Your Voice Matters
We will only beat heart disease and stroke if we work together. We advocate for policies that prevent cardiovascular diseases, improve the quality of and access to care, increase research funding and expand rehabilitation services.
