Nationwide, we invest almost $128.5 million a year ($3.5 billion since 1949) in heart and stroke research that has led to recent breakthroughs such as clot-busting drugs and drug-eluting stents. Healthcare providers learn about medical advances and new treatment guidelines though our journals, conferences and online courses.
The American Heart Association Midwest Affiliate funds projects that help us achieve our Impact Goal:To improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% by the year 2020, and to reduce deaths from heart disease and stroke by 20%.
