America now recognizes the promise of primary care to combat chronic disease before our patients suffer the consequences of advanced illness. We selected your practice to help us prove that we, as primary care providers, can deliver on that promise.

We want to partner with you to help build systems of care which can significally reduce the risk of cardiovascular events and death for patients throughout North Carolina.

For patients who achieve control in all study measures, lifetime cardiovascular mortality risk can be reduced by 75%. Gaining control of even a few measures can lead to perceptible improvements.
