Let's Talk Numbers
The best way to know if you have high blood pressure is to measure your blood pressure. Our Check. Change. Control. program uses self-monitoring and tracking of blood pressure readings at home to help you achieve and maintain a healthy heart. Sign up is easy, just use CODE4 as your campaign code when setting up your account.
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, your actions can help by giving Hands-Only CPR when you see a teen or adult collapse.
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.
Volunteer With Heart
The American Heart Association depends on the time and talent of volunteers to help us create a healthier world, free of heart disease and stroke. Whatever your capabilities, interests or schedule may be, we can find a volunteer opportunity that's right for you.
