Would you recommend American Heart Association of Orange County?

by Katherine O. from Anaheim, CA (July 9, 2009)
I have personal experience in managing my heart disease and high blood pressure. An article I wrote approximately 6 months ago was featured in the "Go Red Campaign" I would like to make a difference and I have some excellent administrative and marketing skills where I could help the American Heart Association.
