Our mission is to create a world free of heart disease and stroke — a world where everyone can achieve the best possible health—and it starts right here in our community. That’s why we must come together to solve complex issues that affect this generation and generations to come. Together we can improve quality of life, ensure healthy environments, strengthen the economy, elevate care and change policy for all.

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.
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.
Fighting For The Health Of Newborns
Congenital heart defects are the top killer of newborns with birth defects. We educated the local community on the need for a simple, non-invasive screening that could prevent these deaths. With a groundswell of support, a state law was passed in 2013 that makes this screening a requirement for all Arkansas hospitals. By working to protect the heart of every child born in Northwest Arkansas, we help the youngest members of our community live a healthy and long life.
Two Steps Can Save a Life
During National CPR Week (June 1st -7th) and throughout the entire month of June, we’re shining a spotlight on the importance of learning Hands-Only CPR. In just two simple steps- calling 9-1-1 and pushing hard and fast in the center of the victim’s chest- you could help save a life.
