AHA / ASA Policy Report
Highlights our priority issues and latest policy advocacy work at the federal level.

In Nebraska during the past five years (2011-2015) the American Heart Association funded over $4 million in new research:

  • 1 new research study at Creighton University, Omaha at a cost of $52,000
  • 3 new research studies at University of Nebraska, Lincoln at a cost of $737,000
  • 27 new research studies at University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha at a cost of $3,307,304
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.

In our 11-state Midwest Affiliate we currently are supporting 402 multi-year studies at a cost of $70,327,574.
