Description/Overview: This symposium will provide an overview of the Million Hearts® initiative and describe the National Interprofessional Education and Practice Consortium to Advance Million Hearts (NIEPCAMH). As part of NIEPCAMH, an interprofessional, online education program has been developed to encourage participation in the Million Hearts initiative by academic, practice, and community organizations. The educational program has had over 4,000 users and has attributed to over 30,000 cardiovascular screenings nationwide. The 10 step screening process will be reviewed. De-identified data collected from screenings over the first 2 years will be described in addition to a population needs assessment. The pedagogy that led to the success of the educational program will also be detailed. Integration into health sciences’ curricula and community outreach initiatives will be discussed. The educational program is in alignment with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral Essentials in addition to three sets of national initiatives and goals. Examples of community outreach includes: partnering with local businesses, designing and offering cardiovascular patient educational classes, and participating in the Wellness On Wheels (WOW) tours.
