Heart Health Plus LogoBeginning in 2016, the Heart Health Plus Program was created with the purpose of reducing health inequity in areas with disproportionate burden of heart disease and related risk factors. Seventeen county health departments (CHDs) are currently implementing Heart Health Plus activities including the implementation of blood pressure self-monitoring (BPSM) programs within their communities. In addition, CHD staff work with community partners to provide screening and outreach within priority populations. They collaborate with health systems to implement policies and systems that encourage the use of BPSM. They also work to increase referrals to additional self-management and healthy behavior support services, such as Diabetes Prevention Programs (DPP), Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES), and Quit Your Way services of Tobacco Free Florida.
