In Kansas during the past five years (2010-2014) the American Heart Association funded over $2.6 million in new research - 21 studies at 3 Kansas institutions.

  • 6 studies at Kansas State University, Manhattan - $793,000
  • 2 studies at the University of Kansas, Lawrence - $147,224
  • 13 studies at the University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City - $1,667,820
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 405 multi-year studies at a cost of $63,864,048
