A Culture of Health

Imagine a San Diego 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.

Show You Have San Diego at Heart

Your voice matters! As a San Diegan, you can make a difference by lending your support to help improve the long-term health of our county.

Fight the No. 1 Cause of Cardiovascular Disease

One way your gift helps save lives is through healthy eating programs, since poor nutrition is a leading cause of cardiovascular disease.
