// KEY SERVICES PROVIDED
At the American Heart Association (AHA), our mission is to create a world free of heart disease and stroke — a world where everyone can achieve the best possible health. That’s why we must come together to solve complex issues. Together, we can improve quality of life, ensure healthy environments, strengthen the economy, elevate care and change policy for all in Michigan.
The AHA of Southeastern Michigan is addressing social determinants through funding, public health education, policy change and working directly with health care professionals to provide them with science-based treatment guidelines to help them provide quality care to all patients.
As the nation’s leader in CPR training the AHA helps people understand the importance of this lifesaving skill and AED use. The AHA also educates lawmakers, policymakers and the public to advocate for changes to protect and improve the health of our local communities. The association has funded more than $4.5 billion in heart disease and stroke research so far — more than any organization outside the federal government.
