Healthy at Home

With the evolving impact of COVID-19 in communities across the country, many Americans are facing new challenges keeping them from getting to the office, school, grocery store or gym. The American Heart Association has resources to help maintain a healthy lifestyle while at home.

Mental Health

Feelings of stress, anxiety, uneasiness and lack of sleep can make it difficult to function normally. Mental health and physical health are closely linked, so finding ways to combat and manage stress in the (virtual) workplace and exercise while working remotely. 

Move More

With school and gym closings, our exercise routines are no longer routine. Use this time as an opportunity to switch up our workout regimen, which can help to boost our immune system, help relieve mental stress and improve overall health.

Advocate for Heart Health

You're the Cure is working within our community to empower citizens to take informed action on local and state policies, and champion policies and laws that help people avoid unhealthy practices and create safer communities.

H2O and GO

In Washington and Benton counties, 31% of children are overweight and obese under guidelines set forth by the CDC. That’s enough to fill a school bus 500 times. Proper hydration is one way to help kids maintain a healthy weight. The American Heart Association is installing 45 H2O and GO water bottle-filling stations in schools over the next 3 years. H2O and GO is a joint effort with Healthy Active Arkansas.
