A relentless force for longer, healthier lives in our community.
Meet Alaska's 2024 Go Red for Women leaders
This year's Go Red for Women chairpersons in Anchorage and Fairbanks are passionate about expanding women's heart health in their communities.
Expanding nutrition security across the Kenai Peninsula
The American Heart Association provided the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank with funds to purchase a freeze dryer, a piece of equipment that extends the shelf life of fruits and vegetables and has helped significantly boost nutrition security across the Kenai Peninsula region.
The American Heart Association is committed to driving equitable health impact in Alaska through five key priority areas: women, readiness, tobacco and vaping, patients and healthy living. Equity is always at the center of our work, and it will continue to guide all that we do.
Through our focus on these key impact areas, and with collaboration among local organizations, sponsors, businesses, and others that serve the community, we are working to improve the health and well-being of Alaskans while saving and improving countless lives.
The American Heart Association, along with our supporters, will drive change, and will be relentless. Thank you for your continued support.
Advocacy has had a mission-critical role in the American Heart Association's work for more than 40 years. Our legislative and regulatory priorities help to mitigate risk factors and protect survivors in communities across the country. We support the enactment of evidence-based public policies that lead to longer, healthier lives.
Our efforts in Alaska include making sure Alaskans have access to health care, improving nutrition security across the state and ensuring Alaskan youth are protected from the dangers of tobacco and nicotine.
Public policy advocacy is an essential strategy used by the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association to affect necessary and sustainable policy, system and environmental changes that help Americans build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.

For nearly 45 years, the American Heart Association has been working with educators in elementary, middle and high schools across the nation to help educate students about healthy living.
The Kids Heart Challenge and American Heart Challenge school programs provide unique age-appropriate curriculum and activities. Students and educators have the tools needed to support both mental and physical well-being in students, families and staff, all while making a difference by raising funds to save lives.
