About CARE

CARE is an acronym for Cardiovascular Assessment, Risk Reduction, and Education. The CARE Collaborative was initiated by the Kentucky Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (KHDSP) Task Force. The CARE Collaborative is a blood pressure awareness program for men and women in Kentucky age 18 and above. This program uses a blood pressure record tool, which focuses on an educational encounter using green (normal), yellow (caution), and red (high) blood pressure color zones.
