You are not alone. Coping with a heart or stroke condition can be complex, but your experience can be more manageable when you have the right kind of support, encouragement, guidance and information.


In the past 100 years, the American Heart Association and its community of supporters have accomplished an astonishing amount in the fight against heart disease and stroke. However, our journey is far from over. As we enter our second century of work together, we’re more dedicated than ever to finding and funding the next big scientific breakthrough in cardiovascular research.

The American Heart Association is committed to creating more equitable health outcomes in Massachusetts through five key priority areas: women, tobacco and vaping, patients, addressing community need and healthy living. Equity is always at the center of our work, and it will continue to guide all that we do.

Through our focus on these impact areas, and in collaboration with local organizations, sponsors, businesses, and others that serve the community, we are removing barriers to health care access and quality so everyone can enjoy a full, healthy life.
