HeartCorps - Public Health AmeriCorps at the AHA
ORGANIZATION: AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION INC
Please visit the new page to apply.
Nearly half of all Americans have high blood pressure, and many don’t know they have it. Uncontrolled high blood pressure is a silent killer that causes unnecessary and inequitable disease, disability and death, robbing us of precious time with loved ones. It can cause heart attacks, heart failure, stroke and other devastating conditions.
Under-resourced communities and those living in rural areas face the highest death rates due to hypertension. Making matters worse, rural communities face a critical shortage of health care professionals, including public health workers, which negatively impacts the care rural residents receive.
The American Heart Association is committed to addressing these inequities and improving blood pressure control and cardiovascular health in rural communities throughout the US.
The AHA is launching our own AmeriCorps program. HeartCorps is a new service opportunity for those interested in driving health equity in rural America with the AHA. We are seeking 100 service members who are interested in supporting this work as AmeriCorps members for the 2022-2023 service year for an 11-month experience starting October 31st, 2022.
Apply to be a HeartCorps Service Member today! HeartCorps members will receive:
- A living stipend of $25,500 (pre-tax)
