Description

Eastern North Carolina Group:

From a group of six cardiologists in 1924, the American Heart Association has grown into the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they can cause disability and diminish quality of life. The AHA knows that with your help, we can see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. We accomplish this mission by:

  • Investing in lifesaving research.
  • Helping people understand how to make healthy lifestyle choices.
  • Providing science-based guidelines for healthcare professionals to better serve their patients.
  • Educating public officials, and advocating for policies that protect and improve community health.
  • Working with diverse partners to remove barriers to care and build a culture focused on health equity.
