Find out how you can be one in a Million Hearts® and make a positive difference in your family, community, and nation.

As a Pharmacy or Pharmacist

  • Track prescription refills and alert prescribers when necessary.
  • As state laws permit, implement collaborative drug therapy management agreements with clinicians.
  • Encourage policies that expand the use of generic medications when clinically appropriate.
  • Encourage staff to distribute sodium information when dispensing a patient's blood pressure medication.
  • Provide blood pressure screening with clinician referrals for follow-up.
  • Only sell validated home blood pressure monitors.
