Michigan Walking Program Recognized

The Healthy Environments Partnership (HEP) has been awarded a Community-Based Participatory Research Initiative grant by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities. Community Approaches to Cardiovascular Health – Dissemination (CATCH-D) aims to share and integrate findings from the Walk Your Heart to Health walking group intervention (WYHH) that HEP began in 2008. Over the next three years, HEP will work with community-based, faith-based, and health services organizations in Detroit to expand the walking group initiative and enhance neighborhood environments to promote heart health in Detroit.
