A Culture of Health Across New Hampshire

Imagine a community where healthy choices are equitable and accessible, where your ZIP code doesn’t determine your health. We are fighting heart diseases and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of all Americans. From working alongside community leaders, to supporting more walking and biking routes, to driving initiatives that make healthier food options available in all neighborhoods, to providing our kids with more opportunities to be active in school – together we are making it easier to be healthy where we live, work, learn and play.

Every year in New Hampshire, 2,600 people die from a heart attack or stroke.

Do you know where you stand?

In America, 116.4 million adults have high blood pressure - and too many have no idea. Left undiagnosed, the condition can lead to heart attack or stroke. Help stop the “Silent Killer” by getting checked and making a generous gift to help a loved one in need.
