A Culture of Health

Imagine a Los Angeles where healthy choices are equitable and accessible, where your freeway exit does not determine your health. 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.

Nourishing Families

Our goal is to provide real solutions to food system problems to increase access and affordability of healthy foods and improve community health. In an effort to better understand the needs of the neighborhoods we serve, the American Heart Association Los Angeles Division commissioned a poll in East LA, where we're collaborating with community groups to address food insecurity. What we found in East LA is that more than half of residents have difficulty getting healthy food, with 62 percent citing cost as a major barrier.

Building Active Communities

We are working to address social and environmental barriers to safe walking and biking to promote healthy, active living. In Inglewood, group of local organizations, called the Inglewood Active Communities Coalition, have joined hands to help improve youth physical activity in the city. Another collaboration, this time between AHA and the 77th Division of the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and The District Music Group, called Community S.T.E.P.S. creates a safe space for dialogue and physical activity between community members and law enforcement. Finally, through our advocacy work we're improving streets, metro access, outdoor usable space and biking routes to create environments that support an active lifestyle.
