The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention is working with NORC at the University of Chicago to identify and evaluate health systems implementing anti-racism practices with the potential to reduce health disparities and improve outcomes related to heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular disease conditions. 

The purpose of this project is to evaluate the impact of these anti-racism practices on the delivery of health care and health equity. Nominating your health system (or encouraging your provider partners to nominate themselves) will help CDC build an evidence base to inform practice and understand the opportunities and challenges of implementing anti-racism practices in health care delivery.


Nominations are due by January 20, 2023. NOMINATE HERE
