Mission Statement

The American Heart Association's Mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Heart disease and stroke are the #1 and #2 killers in the world. Each year, these diseases kill more than 800,000 Americans.

Description

The American Heart Association has grown into the nation's oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. A shared focus on cardiovascular health united our more than 40 million volunteers and supporters as well as our more than 2,800 employees. Our size and scope let us have real impact. The AHA has invested more than $4.6 billion in research, making us the largest not-for-profit funding source for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease research next to the federal government.
