Dr. Fredonia Williams

“The words ‘heart failure’ were devastating to me. I’m optimistic now that I know exactly what heart failure is and is not. I know it can’t be reversed, but with medication and life changes it can be changed.”

–Dr. Fredonia Williams, Huntsville survivor

CPR Trainings

Emergencies leave us feeling helpless, but they don’t have to. Take two minutes to learn Hands-Only CPR™(link opens in new window) now. 70 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes. When a person has a cardiac arrest, immediate CPR can double or triple their chance of survival. Prepare to save a life, find a CPR course near you today.

Healthy For Good

You don’t need a guilt trip. We know you know. You want to be healthy... for good. And we’re here to help inspire you to create lasting change in your health and your life, one small step at a time. The approach is simple: Eat smart. Add color. Move more. Be well. Get Healthy For Good.

Blood Pressure Screenings

Complimentary readings are held throughout the year, because high blood pressure is a largely symptomless disease that often quietly threatens your health. Find out what high blood pressure is and arm yourself with knowledge about this “silent killer” affecting millions of people.

Stress on your blood vessels from high blood pressure can lead to heart attack, stroke, heart failure, and other serious health threats. Use our free Check. Change. Control.™ online tool to track your readings and maintain a healthy heart!

Target BP

For Professionals

Target: BP

The AHA and AMA joined forces with the launch of Target: BP™ to support physicians and care teams. We can track and maintain blood pressure goals for our patients by offering access to the latest research, tools, and resources.

Skip Stinson

“Heart disease changes your life forever, and I would encourage anyone who has history of heart disease to maintain a healthy/active lifestyle and schedule regular checkups. If something doesn’t feel right, have it checked as the signs of heart disease are not always what you think”

–Skip Stinson, Huntsville survivor

Closing Equity Gaps

Healthy School Snacks

State Policy Win

When kids enter the school doors each day, getting the foods they need to succeed shouldn't be a test. That's why we advocated for healthy snack foods and beverages in schools that will help make food choices an easy A.

Life is hard, but you're not alone. We're all in this together, right? Learn from locals like you or help others going through a tough time. Explore the chat forums, read survivor stories, seek and receive support. Because it's okay to lean on others who have been there too.

Why I Support the AHA

“The work of the American Heart Association universally helps people from all walks of life and economic situations improve their daily lives. It brings me great pleasure to know that my volunteer and financial support efforts with the AHA over the past decade are helping to break the silence about the devastating impact heart disease and stroke is having on our families and our communities.”

–Martin Davis, an American Heart Association donor
