Heart and Stroke Awareness Campaigns

Piedmont designed a heart disease and hypertension awareness campaign to reduce the risks of heart disease and high blood pressure through healthy lifestyle changes and advice from a doctor. This program also addresses health issues such as obesity and diabetes, and is available in English and Spanish.

We also designed stroke awareness educational materials in partnership with the stroke accreditation teams to combat unhealthy behaviors that increase the risk of a stroke. These materials are aimed at high-risk community members and are available in English and Spanish.

Medication Management & Older Adult Doctor Visits

Piedmont designed a campaign to reduce the instances of hospital readmission in older adult populations. The program focuses on medication management and understanding care plans, as these are two common and easily managed ways to keep older adults from returning to the hospital or doctor’s office unnecessarily. This program also provides resources for seniors and caregivers who need additional assistance.

Community Benefit Diabetes Resources

Piedmont Healthcare hospitals aim to prevent heart disease, hypertension, obesity and stroke through educational awareness and promotion of healthy behaviors, including efforts to reduce tobacco use.

Diabetes, specifically Type II diabetes, is closely correlated with obesity, heart disease, stroke and hypertension. Currently, it is estimated that nearly 125 million Americans are affected by diabetes or pre-diabetes.
