Cardiovascular Disease Prevention & Treatment Resource Library

Navigation: Intro | How to Use This Resource | Filter Key | Resource Library | Give Feedback


Welcome to CCI’s cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment resource library. This houses resources in focus areas of hypertension, diabetes, healthy living and tobacco cessation. This curated group of resources aims to help community health organizations prevent cardiovascular disease and better care for patients diagnosed with the disease. We have tagged resources in a variety of ways to enable easy searching and filtering.

Resources originate both from national experts and community health organizations. Many come from two of CCI’s programs funded by Kaiser Permanente: Preventing Heart Attacks and Strokes Everyday (PHASE) and Transforming Cardiovascular Care in our Communities (TC3). In these programs, health centers, consortia and public hospital systems in the Bay Area and Los Angeles focus treating patients at risk for cardiovascular disease. Materials and information specific to the PHASE and TC3 programs, such as calendar of events and grant reports, can be found on their respective program websites.
