Contracts for services averaging between $6,575 and $35,000 to North Carolina private and public nonprofit agencies to provide services to screen eligible women (ages 40 to 64) for cardiovascular disease. Funding is intended to reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease among underserved women.
The NC Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation For Women Across the Nation (NC WISEWOMAN) Project promotes effective screening and lifestyle intervention strategies for cardiovascular health in order to reduce the incidence of heart disease and stroke and reduce mortality in eligible underserved women of North Carolina. To be eligible for the NC WISEWOMAN Project, participants must be eligible for the North Carolina Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (NC BCCCP) but need not be enrolled.
Program Goals and Objectives:
Goals: To provide eligible women having chronic disease risk factors with screenings, lifestyle programs, and referral services to prevent cardiovascular disease. (Refer NC WISEWOMAN PROJECT ELIGIBILITY in Section III SCOPE OF SERVICES).
- Provide cardiovascular screening and follow-up services through local contractors.
- Provide women who have abnormal Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) screening results with referrals for medical evaluation, healthy behavior support services (HBSS), team-based care, smoking cessation, community-based resources and clinical linkages, and other healthy lifestyle interventions.
- Evaluate the results of the Project including the effects of specialized counseling and interventions.
- Individual screening goals shall be set with each Contractor based on capacity, prior screening targets, successful outcome results in compliance with CDC performance indicators, and continued NC WISEWOMAN funding. Screening is intended to provide low income, underinsured or uninsured women eligible for the NC BCCCP program with chronic disease risk factor screenings, healthy behavior support options, and referral services in an effort to prevent cardiovascular disease.
- Screening and healthy behavior support options in the WISEWOMAN Project are expected to reduce mortality and morbidity due to cardiovascular risks; increase early detection of cardiovascular disease; decrease risk and disabilities related to stroke; increase healthy lifestyles and improve quality of life.
Priority Population: The priority population is defined as women ages 40 to 64, who include ethnic minorities, who are uninsured or underinsured, or without a usual source of health care whose income is less than 250% of the federal poverty level. Special emphasis should be given to the priority population. All women served must meet the -eligible population requirements: For information on project deliverables, see the RFA: https://bcccp.ncdhhs.gov/rfa-364/RFA-A364-NC-WISEWOMAN.pdf#page=8.
