The North Country Chronic Disease Prevention Coalition was in the national spotlight recently for its work to enhance the quality and quantity of evidence-based chronic disease prevention and self-management services in northern New York.
The Georgia Health Policy Center’s grantee spotlight featured an interview with Ann Morgan, executive director of The Heart Network, which facilitates the Chronic Disease Prevention Coalition. The conversation highlighted the efforts made by coalition members to strengthen region wide programming for people with chronic disease.

The North Country Chronic Disease Prevention Coalition, facilitated by The Heart Network, is a collaborative group of healthcare providers, community-based organizations, and other chronic disease prevention program stakeholders. The Coalition works to make it easier for North Country residents to join programs that are proven to help people feel better and more in control of their health.
The North Country Chronic Disease Prevention Coalition includes organizations in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Warren, Washington, and St. Lawrence counties. The nearly three dozen member agencies represent a diverse array of health care interests, from direct care to public health and social services. Early in 2022, the Coalition launched Get Healthy North Country, a website that acts as a one-stop shop for those looking to enroll in local workshops and wellness programs to help them prevent or better manage diabetes, high blood pressure or other chronic diseases.
