American Heart Association

What is the American Heart Association?

The American Heart Association (AHA) seeks to improve Americans’ cardiovascular health through preventative care. Founded in 1924, the AHA funds research, offers educational resources, and lobbies for policies that promote heart health. The organization also provides guidance on healthy lifestyle choices, such as eating a healthy diet and maintaining a regular exercise routine.

By promoting heart-healthy lifestyles, the AHA hopes to reduce the incidence of heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Thanks to the AHA’s efforts, Americans are now living longer and healthier lives.

Healthcare workers are on the front lines of the fight against heart disease, and the American Heart Association provides them with the resources they need to be successful.

The organization funds groundbreaking research into the causes and treatments of heart disease, offers educational programs to help healthcare workers learn about the prevention and management of heart conditions, and advocates for policies that will improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans.
