The five grants are: (1) State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health (known as Prevention First), (2) State and Local Public Health Actions to Prevent Obesity, Diabetes, Heart Disease and Stroke (known as Lifetime of Wellness), (3) Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant (known as Cardiovascular Disease Prevention), (4) Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Prevention (known as Stoke Registry/Coverdell), and (5) Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation (WISEWOMAN) Program.
