Maine Cardiovascular Health Council

The Maine Cardiovascular Health Council began in 1978 as the Maine High Blood Pressure Council in response to rising awareness that elevated blood pressure was a major risk factor for heart disease. In 1989, in recognition that other risk factors for heart disease also needed to be addressed, the Council changed its name to the Maine Cardiovascular Health Council. The Council promotes cardiovascular health and risk reduction in Maine communities by working cooperatively with other organizations and agencies to improve coordination of resources. The Council promotes patient, professional, and public education programs and actively supports legislation to increase the resources needed to improve cardiovascular risk reduction.
