At the American Heart Association, our mission is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. That single purpose drives all we do. Among our many initiatives, we have:

  1. Worksite Health Solutions & Food and Beverage Toolkit: for workplaces that would like to provide healthier foods to their employees, as well as to improve their culture of health.
  2. Target BP: a collaboration with clinics and hospitals to help lower BP and stroke risks in Greater Pittsburgh Area; in partnership with the American Medical Association.
  3. CPR in Schools / Advocacy: an awareness campaign on why it is important to bring CPR to schools as a requirement for school graduation, and a strategy to implement it.

About the American Heart Association

The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. Founded by six cardiologists in 1924, our organization now includes more than 22.5 million volunteers and supporters. We fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide critical tools and information to save and improve lives. Our nationwide organization includes 156 local offices and more than 3,000 employees. We moved our national headquarters from New York to Dallas in 1975 to be more centrally located. The American Stroke Association was created as a division in 1997 to bring together the organization’s stroke-related activities.

What We Do: To improve the lives of all Americans, we provide public health education in a variety of ways. We’re the nation’s leader in CPR education training. We help people understand the importance of healthy lifestyle choices. We provide science-based treatment guidelines to healthcare professionals to help them provide quality care to their patients. We educate lawmakers, policymakers and the public as we advocate for changes to protect and improve the health of our communities.
