About the American Heart Association
The New York City Young Professionals are a group of New York City 20 and 30-somethings that move, talk, and take action—fast, while texting, Facebook’ing and Tweeting. We’re not recommending any of those activities while walking but, we know it happens. #getphysical. This group is committed to making heart and stroke health and prevention a trending topic not just on Twitter but on the minds of all New Yorkers.
2012/2013 Young Professionals Community Teaching Garden Project:
Nearly one in three children and adolescents in the United States are overweight or obese. Overweight children have a 70-80 percent chance of being overweight adults. The American Heart Association Young Professionals are joining the efforts to fight #childhoodobesity. This year the Young Professionals will be working with a school in the New York City area to teach kids about healthy living through a fun, hands-on Teaching Garden. This Teaching garden will be one of many in the U.S. working to teach children in grades K-5 how to plant seeds, nurture growing plants, harvest, produce, and ultimately understand the value of good eating habits.
These will rock your socks—that’s a promise.
Social Events: The Young Professionals host approximately 3 social events annually
Meeting Calendar: The Young Professionals also host monthly meetings that inform and educate about various mission components of the American Heart Association. Check out our newsletters to see what the American Heart Association Young Professionals are talking about!

Heart disease and stroke are the country’s No.1 and No. 3 causes of death, killing nearly one million people each year. If they were on Twitter, they’d give Kim K a run for her money. In New York City alone, cardiovascular disease kills one person every 33 seconds. #itdoesn’thavetobethatway
