A Culture of Health
Imagine a Stockton and Modesto where healthy choices are equitable and accessible. Where the healthy choice is the easy choice. 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.

Local Go Red for Women Ambassadors
We work with local women who are survivors of heart disease and stroke and health experts to raise awareness about cardiovascular health in our community. These women’s stories, knowledge and experiences fuel our Go Red for Women movement to support women’s cardiovascular health and work to overcome gender disparities in research and care. Each woman is on a unique journey and is passionate about giving back to help their peers stay healthy.
209 Heart and Stroke Walk Digital Experience Raises more than $260,000 to Fight Cardiovascular Diseases with Research and Education
On September 26, 2020 survivors and their families, advocates for healthier communities, healthcare workers, and other supporters of heart and brain health got moving at home and in their community for the American Heart Association’s annual 209 Heart and Stroke Walk. With the COVID-19 pandemic keeping more Americans at home the AHA made the annual event a digital experience. Participants walked or got active in their own way and shared how they were supporting their cardiovascular health on social media using the hashtag #209HeartandStrokeWalk.
Thank you to Brad Ardis, President of Huff Construction for serving as this year’s Heart and Stroke Walk Chair and congratulations to Collins Electrical Company, Inc., and Huff Construction for being the 2020 Top Walk Teams!
Join Our Agriculture Health Roundtable
With support from stakeholders in the agriculture industry, the American Heart Association Stockton and Modesto Division is working to break the silence about the devastating impact heart disease has on employees, families, our communities, and specifically for the most vulnerable. The Harvest with Heart Roundtable will bring together leaders from the top local companies in the industry to make a tangible impact on the biggest health concerns and disparities. This first-ever industry specific health initiative from the AHA is focused on integrating policy, system and environmental changes that can yield positive health outcomes for overall healthier workforces.
Join our 2021 Greater Sacramento and Central Valley Hard Hats with Heart Roundtable
Hard Hats with Heart is the American Heart Association’s first ever, industry-specific health initiative for the Central Valley and Sacramento area that will convene local construction industry stakeholders for quarterly discussions to collectively identify workplace challenges, dominant behaviors impacting health, and key health risk factors causing craftworkers to be disproportionately affected by heart disease and stroke. This initiative aims to integrate policy, system, and environmental changes that can yield positive health outcomes. Together, the AHA and leaders within the construction industry will work together to address health concerns for some of the area’s top employers.
