Regional prevention project involving 10,000 adults cuts heart attacks by 25 percent

(both incident and recurrent) over 10 quarterly periods between January 2008 and June 2010. The first five quarters represented the period before active interventions began and the last five quarters represented the period since active interventions began.

Total acute heart attacks were 62 in the pre-intervention quarters versus 47 in intervention quarters.

The community has played a large part in the ongoing project by embracing the project. In random telephone surveys, 94 percent of respondents reported they believe the Heart of New Ulm Project will be successful in achieving its mission to reduce heart attacks, explained Boucher. The community is engaged at every level, from schools to worksites to lay health leaders to the providers within the health care system which has been a huge contributor to the project success, she said.

The first health screenings took place from April to November of 2009 and almost 5,200 people took part. We are hoping to get at least 60 percent of the people who got screened in 2009 to d
