Although heart disease and stroke death rates are leveling off after 40 years of steady decline in the United States, cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the nation’s leading cause of death for men and women of all races and ethnicities. It is the greatest contributor to racial disparities in life expectancy and in some populations, CVD is increasing.
Join us for this session of Grand Rounds to hear what Tennessee is doing to create healthy communities. Learn what practices can do to improve heart health by managing the ABCS, and find out what can be done to prevent a second heart attack. Million Hearts® 2022 will present its actionable priorities to get and keep people healthy.

Opioid overdose epidemic is well documented nationally and regionally. The Centers for Disease Control attribute poor prescribing by healthcare providers to be a key problem that needs to be addressed. Healthcare providers receive little education on management of pain or addiction in professional didactic or residency training. There is a need for this education to help improve learning deficits and to promote safer opioid prescribing.
The Wise County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia Department of Behavioral Health will be holding two REVIVE training opportunities on January 23rd.
Location: Wise County Sheriff’s Office
