In Kansas during the past five years (2012-2016) the American Heart Association funded more than $2.7 million in new research:

  • 4 studies at Kansas State University, Manhattan - $507,000
  • 2 studies at the University of Kansas, Lawrence - $194,174
  • 14 studies at the University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City - $2,044,780
Nationwide, we invest almost $145 million a year ($3.7 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.
