Hypertension Control Challenge
Thank You for Your Interest in the 2023 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge!
The application period for the 2023 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge has ended.
The Challenge will identify clinicians and practices that have prioritized hypertension control and are helping their patients live free of heart attacks and strokes. These groups are contributing to the Million Hearts® aim to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes within 5 years.
Check back later for updates on our 2023 Hypertension Control Champions.
About the Challenge
The Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge identifies clinicians and practices that have demonstrated exceptional achievements in working with their patients to control hypertension. This year, we will be recognizing those who achieved blood pressure control (blood pressure readings below 140 mm Hg/90 mm Hg) among 80% of their hypertensive population ages 18–85 years.
The Challenge is open to clinicians and medical practices located in the United States and its territories. Strategies used by Champions that support hypertension control may be written into a success story and posted on this website.
As of 2022, CDC has recognized 143 Hypertension Control Champions across 42 states and the District of Columbia.
