You can save a life

The 2020 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care emphasize quick action by bystanders to begin CPR and training for all.

Don't Die of Doubt

When an emergency strikes, hospitals are still the safest place – even during a pandemic. Call 911 at the first sign of a heart attack or stroke.

Do you Know Where You Stand?

In America, 116.4 million adults have high blood pressure - and too many of them have no idea. Left undiagnosed, the condition can lead to heart attack or stroke. Help stop the “Silent Killer” by getting checked and making a generous gift to help a loved one in need.
