Brain Health Resource and Technical Assistance Center

ACPM is committed to educating physicians and health care professionals about the benefits of blood pressure control and other modifiable risk factors as a possible mechanism for reducing the risk of future impaired brain health and cognitive decline.

To raise awareness, ACPM is developing activities to increase the number of physicians and health care professionals taking action to assess, diagnose, and refer patients with brain health issues to evidence-based programs focused on self-measured blood pressure monitoring. Activities include a webinar series, leadership institute at Prevention 2019, and this online resource center containing relevant research, provider tools, and patient materials.

This initiative is supported by the CDC National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion and the CDC Division for Population Health, and is part of a cooperative agreement between ACPM and the CDC Center for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support.
