Mission Statement

The mission of the American Heart Association is to reduce disability and death from cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Description

The association continues its fight against cardiovascular disease and stroke by funding research and providing educational programs and materials to the public. The American Heart Association's public education programs tell people how to reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke. Millions of people learn each year of the dangers of cigarette/tobacco smoke, high blood pressure, a diet high in fats and cholesterol, and being inactive. They also participate in programs that encourage a more healthful lifestyle. Those programs are held in community sites, in schools, at healthcare sites and where people work. The American Heart Association is designed to reach all segments of the nation's population. We are dedicated to fighting the number one killer of men and women - cardiovascular disease.
