Improving the health of local employees
Groundbreaking research is vital to improving local patient outcomes. This is why we have been funding research in Colorado since the 1970s. By driving scientific breakthroughs and creating guidelines for care that reflect the latest proven research findings, we improve the way that local hospitals help patients prevent, treat and recover from heart disease and stroke.
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. Our advocates are addressing critical healthcare concerns by advocating for policies that can improve access and boost the quality and value of care.

The Moment You Move More
Americans’ sedentary lifestyles are increasing their risk for heart disease and stroke, but small steps—actual steps—lead to big gains and can help you become Healthy For Good. Whether it’s walking, running, biking, swimming, playing sports or doing yoga, the American Heart Association recommends adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity per week, or 75 minutes of vigorous activity. Kids should get at least 60 minutes of activity every day.
If you don’t want to sweat the numbers, just move more. Sneak more steps into your daily routine and find forms of exercise you enjoy.
