The National Forum for Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention brings together the most dynamic and diverse organizations in cardiovascular health to:
- Share successful strategies and practices, and lessons learned
- Discuss new ideas in a collaborative environment
- Develop, pilot and scale innovative approaches to prevent cardiovascular disease
Members value the opportunities created by the National Forum for them to engage in discussions that are uniquely inclusive, transparent and consensus-building. National Forum initiatives enable members to work together, across sectors, to develop and advance strategies to prevent heart disease and stroke in all populations.
The National Forum’s Annual Meeting convenes 100 thought leaders from over 60 public, private and nonprofit organizations including our members and partners. During this time, our Annual Business Meeting of the organization is held where the National Forum Awards are presented. Beginning in 2017, the National Forum released a series of reports focused on the state of cardiovascular disease and stroke in the nation. The Signature Reports highlight trends and opportunities for improving heart health.
