We want everyone to experience more of life’s precious moments. To do that, we must be healthy — in heart and mind. It’s why we’ve made better heart and brain health our mission. And together, we’ve made an extraordinary impact. But we’re just beginning. Until the world is free of heart disease and stroke, we’ll work together to make a healthier, longer life possible for everyone. Why do we do what we do? Because we’re the American Heart Association. And life is why.
Life is why we’re one of the leading funders of cardiovascular research.
Life is why we show you how to reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke.
Life is why we provide hospital guidelines that help patients get the best possible treatment.
Life is why we urge lawmakers to require CPR in high schools, sending a million new lifesavers into our communities every year.
Life is why we encourage you to take care of yourself so you can be there for more of life’s precious moments.
Life is why everyone has a reason to give.
