Have you seen our Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke video yet? The video is in Somali (with English subtitles) and gives an overview of the risk factors for heart disease and stroke. It also talks about how you can prevent heart disease and improve your health by following some simple steps.
Diabetes, heart disease, and stroke are three of the six leading causes of death in Minnesota, according to the Minnesota Office of Minority and Multicultural Health. Through the Eliminating Health Disparities Initiative (EHDI) program activities, WellShare is working to reduce the risk factors for diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
The project was made possible by a grant from the Eliminating Health Disparities Initiative of the Minnesota Department of Health Center for Equity, through an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature.
