What the American Heart Association Means to me

Updated:Jun 5,2013

The American Heart Association passion team has motivated and inspired me to be a volunteer for more than 20 years. For me, it has always been about the amazing team of staff and volunteers and what we can do together. I’m not a scientist, but I know what the AHA team has allowed me to help support and understand research that is saving lives. I’m not a doctor, but the dedicated medical professionals have patiently explained things to me so that I can help communicate it to the public. I am particularly excited about the current initiatives to encourage behavioral changes that will have such a long-term impact on the health of individuals and the nation. I am humbled and proud to be part of the amazing and passionate AHA team.
