Mili announces $239,000 grant to St. Wagon The AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation's Connections for Cardiovascular Health sM pro- gram announced a grant of $239,000 to St. Mary's Health Wagon in support of the Ap- palachian Healthy Heart Initia= tive. This is the third consecutive year in which the Health Wagon has received a grant from the Foundation, totaling $545,562. The Appalachian Healthy Heart Initiative works to im- prove quality of care through prevention, detection and treat- ment of heart disease and to reduce cardiovascular health disparities for those who are uninsured and under-insured in the Appalachian Mountains of Southwest Virginia. The pro- gram does this through both primary and preventive care initiatives, outreach programs, health promotion activities and screenings, culturally appro- priate education with a focus on: risk factor reduction and en- gagement of the community through awareness. After a second straight year of funding from the AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation, the Ap- palachian Healthy Heart Initia- tive reported that in 2012 more than 4,810 patients were screen- ed through the cardiovascular risk assessment. Of those, 519 were tracked longer term and over 50 percent experienced weight loss of 10 pounds or more. "It has been a pleasure to implement the Appalachian Healthy Heart Initiative and help many individuals of southwest Virginia," said Dr. Teresa Gardner, Executive Director, Health Wagon. "The Health Wagon .is very thankful for the support AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation has provided during the duration of the project. We will continue to sustain the pro- ject on our own to help expand health care overall and cardio- vascular awareness and treat- ment to the people of the Appalachians." The expanding infrastructure supported by past AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation funding will help .the Health Wagon transition fi'om a 'project' to a national cardiovascular health model that can be replicated and developed. The goal of the pro- gram is to expand the innovative health care model currently providing services to the target population by providing a Fam- ily Nurse Practitioner and nurse case manager. Concurrently, the program will develop a regional 16646 Russell St. (beside St. Paul Fire Dept.) OPEN SATURDAYS 10-12 or anytime by appointment Contact Jerry Couch 762.9514 = .

Blasetto, M.D., MPH, FACC chairman of the AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation. "The AstraZeneca HealthCare Found- ation is proud to provide funding to innovative, grassroots pro- grams like the St. Mary's Health Wagon Appalachian Healthy Heart Initiative, which work to help prevent and control the effects of cardiovascular disease in their community."
