The American Heart Association's mission is to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke, America's No. 1 and No. 3 killers. By the year 2020, our goal is to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent while reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent. The American Heart Association, founded in 1924, is the nation's oldest and largest voluntary health organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. To prevent, treat, and ultimately defeat these diseases, we fund cutting-edge research, conduct lifesaving public and professional educational programs, and advocate to protect public health.
The American Heart Association is devoted to saving people from heart disease and stroke – two of the top causes of death in America. We team with millions of volunteers to fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat these diseases. To learn more or to get involved, call 1-800-AHA-USA1, visit heart.org, or call any of our offices around the country.
