This project aims to utilize a mixed method learning model to host bi-monthly “events”. The Million Hearts Learning Lab is a bi-monthly learning series focused on cardiovascular disease prevention and management topics. The series is open to clinicians, quality improvement, and other interested staff across the country, but with a focus on community health centers. Clinicians may earn 1.0 CME credit per session and up to 5.0 credits for attending the full series through the American Medical Association's Ed Hub. All pre-work and live event links are hosted on NACHC Learning Lab Platform – Confluence, with a link pointing to AMA's Ed Hub to apply for CME Credit.

The format of these events will include:

The expert faculty for the first two events will be the AMA team and for the final three events will be Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs)/health centers in Discovery projects.
