A Culture Of Health

 

Our mission is 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 Charlotte. That's why we must come together to solve complex issues that affect this generation and generations to come.

Hands-Only CPR Can Save Lives

Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR. As a bystander, don't be afraid. Your actions can only help by giving Hands-Only CPR! When you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, call 911 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of any tune that is 100 to 120 beats per minute. Immediate CPR can double or even triple a person's chance of survival.

Healthy For Good

You don’t need a guilt trip. We know you know. You want to be Healthy For Good. And we’re here to help inspire you to create lasting change in your health and your life, one small step at a time. The approach is simple: Eat smart. Add color. Move more. Be well.

Your Voice Matters

We will only beat heart diseases and stroke if we work together. In North Carolina, we support and advocate for public policies that will prevent cardiovascular diseases. This year we are advocating for policies that focus on closing the health insurance coverage gap, elevating physical education in schools, increase funding for state tobacco prevention programs and building communities that promote physical activity.
