Wisconsin will receive $1.7 million in grant awards from Health and Human Services to support programs aimed at preventing chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke and diabetes, according to an HHS statement Thursday.

A total of three awards will be available, which are funded by the federal health reform law and administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
