To build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.


// KEY SERVICES PROVIDED

To improve the lives of all Americans, the American Heart Association provides public health education in a variety of ways. It is the nation’s leader in CPR education training. It helps people understand the importance of healthy lifestyle choices. It provides science-based treatment guidelines to health care professionals, to help them provide quality care to their patients. It educates lawmakers, policymakers, and the public as it advocates for changes to protect and improve the health of our communities. Its volunteer experts select the scientific research most worthy of funding, with great results. The association has funded more than $3.7 billion in heart disease and stroke research — more than any organization outside the federal government.
