    American Heart Association fight heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives, a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.

    The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke.

    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. We have funded more than $3.8 billion in heart disease and stroke research, more than any organization outside the federal government.

    With your help, we are working toward improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent, and reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent, all by the year 2020.
