Leading with Survivors
What Elizabeth thought was a terrible case of heartburn turned out to be so much more. Thankfully she remembered what she'd learned at a past Bismarck Go Red for Women event and called for help. She shared her inspirational story at the 2022 Bismarck Go Red for Women event in the hopes that her message encourages others to live life to the fullest.

In Your Community
The American Heart Association is committed to driving equitable health impact in North Dakota through five key priority areas: women, readiness, tobacco and vaping, patients, 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 key impact areas, and with collaboration among local organizations, sponsors, businesses, and others that serve the community, we are working to improve the health and well-being of North Dakota citizens while saving and improving countless lives.
Throughout the state of North Dakota, we’ve seen our community impact work grow, including efforts around creating avenues for greater access to care, expanding healthy food access and education, building a network of first responders through CPR kits in schools, supporting blood pressure screenings and education, and educating on the dangers of tobacco and vaping.
People are counting on us as never before. We at the American Heart Association, along with our supporters, will drive change, and we will be relentless. Thank you for your continued support.
