Help us ensure that everyone in Southern Arizona has the opportunity to live a longer, healthier life.
A Culture of Health
Imagine an Arizona where healthy choices are equitable and accessible. Where the healthy choice is the easy choice. We are fighting heart diseases and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of all Americans, by making the places we live, learn, work, play, pray and heal healthier.
Do you know where you stand?
In America, 116.4 million adults have high blood pressure - and too many 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.
Fight heart disease and stroke by joining a Southern Arizona event!

Many people may have missed their routine check-ups and annual physicals this past year. It’s easy to overlook preventative care when you have so much on your mind, but you can’t afford to let your health take a backseat.
