Addressing the Opioid Epidemic

More opioid prescriptions are filled in Arkansas each year than there are people.  Fatal overdoses in our state have increased by roughly 300 percent in the last twenty years.  In a crisis, it’s important to be able to recognize the warning signs and perform proper CPR.

Blood Pressure

Let's Talk Numbers

The damage to your blood vessels from undetected or uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to heart attack, stroke, heart failure and other serious health threats.

Create Generations of Lifesavers

Sudden cardiac arrest can happen anywhere, anytime. The best chance of surviving is to receive CPR immediately. Sadly, most of the time that doesn’t happen. The American Heart Association wants to embolden students to act quickly in an emergency. Arkansas requires high school students to receive CPR training prior to graduation. CPR in Schools kits contain everything an educator needs to train multiple students at once.

The Moment You Move More

Americans’ sedentary lifestyles are increasing their risk for heart disease and stroke, but small steps—actual steps—lead to big gains and can help you become Healthy For Good. Whether it’s walking, running, biking, swimming, playing sports or doing yoga, the American Heart Association recommends adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity per week, or 75 minutes of vigorous activity. Kids should get at least 60 minutes of activity every day.

If you don’t want to sweat the numbers, just move more. Sneak more steps into your daily routine and find forms of exercise you enjoy.

Little Hats Big Hearts

Little Hats, Big Hearts™, honors babies and moms in a very special way. These tiny red hats, on thousands of babies, symbolize our shared mission of heart-healthy lives for everyone. The effort also raises awareness of congenital heart defects, and what we can all do to help prevent them. Volunteers knit the caps and sponsors help to distribute and spread the word.
