The Million Hearts® Learning Lab is hosting a bi-monthly learning series focused on cardiovascular disease prevention and management. The series is open to clinicians, quality improvement and other interested staff across the country, but with a focus on community health centers.
The first 2022 Learning Lab session, Treating patients with hypertension: What’s the Rx?, will review recommendations and evidence supporting the use of multiple medication classes and provide an overview of barriers to using multiple medication classes to treat patients with hypertension.
