Our healthy living initiative aimed at helping American households, worksites and communities focus on their health - and enjoy doing it. We guide people through the small steps that can go a long way toward improving their lives and reduce their risks for heart disease and stroke.
We want kids more active and eating healthy and we've built a plan to do it. Healthy children make healthy adults and we have the tools to encourage more play, more fruit and vegetable consumption and a better understanding of science and math.
Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined - over 400,000 women per year. Our programs harness the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease.
Stroke is the No. 4 cause of death in the United States and the leading cause of adult disability. Help us ensure healthcare professionals have resources to quickly diagnose and treat stroke patients and prevent future strokes. Join us in supporting the 5.5 million stroke survivors and their families.
Anyone can learn CPR - and everyone should! Sadly, 70 percent of Americans may feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they either do not know how to administer CPR or their training has significantly lapsed. Eighty-eight percent of cardiac arrests occur at home. Help us create lifesavers around the country.
Through Multicultural Market initiatives the American Heart Association will help create a sustainable cultural of health for all by being a trusted source for healthy living and transforming community environments.
Patient and Professional Education
People trust us for reliable information. We understand the patient's journey and work with them, their hospitals, and their healthcare professionals to provide fast and sustainable recovery by helping consumers track and manage the factors that affect heart health. We remain the source for science and guidelines for medical professionals who treat cardiovascular disease.
