  • CHCSEK Healthy Heart Ambassador Program Sucess Story

      CHCSEK logo

    In late 2021, Community Health Centers of Southeast Kansas (CHCSEK), headquartered in Pittsburg, was awarded grant funding through the KDHE Community Health Worker Teams Program.  The Kansas Healthcare Collaborative provides technical assistance for that program in conjunction with KDHE.  As part of the grant, CHCSEK implemented the Healthy Heart Ambassador (HHA) program, which is a CDC recognized lifestyle change program and Self Measured Blood Pressure Monitoring (SMBP) program for patients with hypertension.  CHCSEK started their HHA program in February of 2022, not realizing that one year later, the HHA program would not only change the lives of their patients, but also the lives of their staff.
