Building healthier lives, free from cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Heart disease is the #1 killer and Stroke is the #5 killer of all Americans. Over 25% of the deaths in Louisiana are from cardiovascular diease and stroke.
The American Heart Association is working to change this by building a culture of health guided by our impact goal. We are working to improve 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. That means 1,825 Louisiana lives saved per year.
