Syracuse at Heart

We’re working to create a world free of heart disease and stroke - a world where everyone can achieve the best possible health - and it starts right here in Syracuse. From teaming up with city leaders to support 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. Whether you’re an ordinary citizen, a business executive, a faith leader or a policy maker, you can help join us on our journey to build a healthier Syracuse! 
 

Help save lives from heart disease and stroke

Heart disease and stroke are leading causes of death and disability in the U.S., and we need your help today. Please give now to support lifesaving research, medical breakthroughs and the critical programs heart and stroke patients count on.

Improving Quality of Life

Living healthy and free of disease makes a critical difference in quality of life. That’s why we’re working to raise awareness about the vital effect lifestyle has on health and helping communities form healthy habits.

Strengthening the Economy

A community's well-being is directly related to the health of its local economy. We’re teaming up with employers across the state, encouraging them to comprehensive workplace health programs that help people get active on the job.

Elevating Care

With human ingenuity, we can prevent heart disease and stroke — and care for people who suffer from these devastating diseases.  We’re working with communities, hospitals and emergency care professionals to form effective and efficient systems of care that save and improve lives.

Changing Policy

Policy has the power to protect our health, improve communities and drive lasting change.  That’s why we’re championing policies and laws to help keep our state healthy. Share your voice and become an advocate. 

Share Your Story

Perhaps you or someone you care about suffered from heart disease or stroke. Maybe you know someone whose life was impacted by CPR or changed through a healthier lifestyle. Whatever your experience may be, sharing your story is a great opportunity to give hope to others experiencing a similar situation or to inspire others to live a healthier life.

Creating a Culture of Health in Syracuse

There is no quick fix, no one way to solve complex health issues that are affecting this generation and generations to come. That’s why we’re focused on the areas within communities where there is an opportunity to make the greatest impact.  Together we can improve quality of life, ensure healthy environments, strengthen the economy, elevate care and change policy for all in Syracuse. Because at the center of it all, we have Syracuse at Heart.
