Million Hearts

SAMHSA Initiative

Million Hearts is a national initiative of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over the next 5 years. Heart disease and stroke are two of the leading causes of death in the United States. Million Hearts brings together communities, health systems, nonprofits, federal agencies, and private-sector partners from across the country to fight heart disease and stroke.

As a participant organization in this program and an advocate for consumer wellness and interactivity, The Main Place coordinates cardiovascular excercise events 5 times per week for "The Wellness Warriors". Please see the photo journal on our Facebook page documenting the amazing walking mileage, pace and calorie burning they have logged to date!
