The Task Force and its Stroke Advisory Council carry out legislatively mandated functions in planning and coordinating activities to address policy, environmental and systems-level change supportive of cardiovascular health and disease prevention. For more information contact Anna Bess Brown at Anna.Brown@dhhs.nc.gov. Visit StartWithYourHeart.com for more information about heart disease, stroke prevention or the Task Force.
