The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) located within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announces the launch of the Million Hearts[supreg] Hypertension Control Challenge. Million Hearts[supreg] is a national initiative to prevent one million heart attacks and strokes by 2022. Achieving this goal means 10 million more Americans must have their blood pressure under control. Million Hearts[supreg] is working to control high blood pressure through clinical approaches, such as using health information technology to its fullest potential and integrating team-based approaches to health care, and community approaches, such as strengthening tobacco control and promoting physical activity. For more information about the initiative, visit https://millionhearts.hhs.gov/. To support improved blood pressure control, HHS/CDC is announcing the 2017 Million Hearts[supreg] Hypertension Control Challenge. The challenge will improve understanding of successful implementation strategies at the health system level by motivating clinical practices and health systems to strengthen their hypertension control efforts. It will identify clinicians, clinical practices, and health systems that have exceptional rates of hypertension control and recognize them as Million Hearts[supreg] Hypertension Control Champions. To support improved quality of care delivered to patients with hypertension, Million Hearts[supreg] will document the systems, strategies, processes, and staffing that contribute to the exceptional blood pressure control rates achieved by Champions.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) located within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) launches the ``Be Heads Up About Concussion Safety'' poster design contest for children and adolescents ages 5 to 18. HHS/CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) asks children and adolescents to be creative and send in posters they create by taking concussion safety key messages created by CDC (listed below), or creating their own message(s) on concussion safety, and using them to design a poster. Children and adolescents can draw, paint, or use a computer to design a poster. The poster should be designed to help make aware and educate other children and adolescents about how to spot a concussion or other serious brain injury, what to do if someone may have a concussion or other serious brain injury, and how to help keep safe from these injuries at school, home, or play. Children and adolescents can create their own concussion safety messages or use one or more of the CDC key messages listed below in their poster: Be Heads Up about concussion. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/ Concussion. Be Heads Up about concussion at school, home, and play. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. We can all play a role in concussion safety. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. Be Heads Up! All concussions are serious. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. Get a Heads Up! Learn what to do if you think you have a concussion at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. Getting back in the game with a concussion is a bad call. It could take you out of the game of life, for good. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. All concussions are serious. It's better to miss one game than the whole season. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/Concussion. Be Heads Up! If you think you have a concussion: don't hide, report it. Take time to recover. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/ Concussion. This contest is necessary to make children and adolescents aware that there are things they can do to help prevent concussions and other serious brain injuries. We expect the contest will inspire children and adolescents to educate other people and raise awareness of concussion safety in elementary, middle, and high schools in their communities. By showcasing the winning posters in each category of submission ((1) Ages 5-8; (2) Ages 9-12; (3) Ages 13-15; (4) Ages 16-18), we will help children and adolescents reach others with important messaging about concussions and other serious brain injuries.
