AccentHealth and AHA Collaborate on TV Programming to Educate Patients on Cardiovascular Health

The two organizations will work together to provide expert content to viewers of its television network

November 17, 2014 — AccentHealth will collaborate with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) to provide expert content to viewers of its television network in doctor offices' waiting rooms. This content will cover key cardiovascular health topics such as healthy living, stroke and high blood pressure.

This programming will supplement existing television content, produced by CNN's Medical Unit and hosted by Sanjay Gupta, M.D., together with content partnerships for other conditions, including from the recently announced collaboration between AccentHealth and the American Cancer Society.

Cardiovascular disease, which includes stroke, is the number one cause of death in the United States for both men and women. Together, AccentHealth and the AHA/ASA will engage patients to help them feel more confident about making important lifestyle changes.
