MAKING HEALTH
A SHARED VALUE

What is Village HeartBEAT?

The Village HeartBEAT (Building Education & Accountability Together) program is a collaborative program organized to reduce risk-factors associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) through Faith-Based Organizations (FBO) in Mecklenburg County. The overarching goal is to invest in FBOs as mutual business partners to adopt effective and sustainable policy, systems and environmental change (PSE) strategies to enhance healthier lifestyle choices, develop tobacco-free sites, implement sustainable physical activities and nutritional options. VHB incorporates a 10-month FBOs competition team challenge that uses a community-based framework to provide 

tools and resources to improve healthy outcomes.
