Additional Information: ACPM has received a one year grant (potentially renewable) from the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Division of Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention. The CDC-led WISEWOMAN (Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for WOMen Across the Nation) program helps women understand and reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke and promotes lasting heart-healthy lifestyles. The WISEWOMAN program served nearly 150,000 women between 2008 and 2013—91% of whom had at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke—and nearly 101,000 women participated in a healthy lifestyle service to reduce these women’s risk for heart disease and stroke. The WISEWOMAN program currently consists of 21 programs in 19 states and 2 tribal organizations. The purpose of this project is to assist the CDC in increasing physician / clinician awareness of hypertension as a serious health condition and to increase the number of physicians / clinicians who are promoting awareness, screening and referral of patients with hypertension to evidence based programs. The Program Manager will have the opportunity to work with the CDC and partner organizations to develop, coordinate, implement and manage educational trainings, as well as, gather stakeholder input from experts in the field. The Program Manager will lead the process to: • Create educational and experiential learning opportunities for physicians/health professionals through existing professional networks, meetings/conferences, web-based forums, online tools, and publications (journals, e-newsletters, etc.) • Conduct Physician peer-to-peer mentoring and outreach • Develop physician “champions” to serve as spokespersons and advocates for increasing prediabetes screening, testing, and referral • Create demonstration projects to evaluate innovative approaches to engaging and activating practitioners in targeted medical specialty groups or specific geographic areas of need
