The Impact of Congenital Heart Defects

A congenital heart defect (CHD) results when the heart, or blood vessels near the heart, don’t develop normally before birth. Anyone can have a child with a congenital heart defect. Out of 1,000 births, at least eight babies will have some form of congenital heart disorder, most of which are mild. If you or other family members have already had a baby with a heart defect, your risk of having a baby with a heart defect may be higher. Patient and family education is an important part of successful coping.

Training Kiosk for Hands-Only CPR

More than 100,000 people have been trained in the life-saving skill of Hands-Only CPR since the American Heart Association launched its Hands-Only CPR training kiosk program in 2016. As part of the program that is nationally supported by Anthem Foundation, the Association has placed 30 of these interactive devices in cities across the country. Let's add Tulsa to that list!

Grocery Shopping With No Car

Grocery Shopping Without a Car

If you don’t have access to a car, grocery shopping can require a fair amount of planning ahead. We have tips to simplify and lighten your load, while maintaining a healthy diet.

Changing Policy

You're the Cure is working within our community to empower citizens to take informed action on local and state policies, and champion policies and laws that help people avoid unhealthy practices and create safer communities. Our advocates are addressing critical healthcare concerns by advocating for policies that can improve access and boost the quality and value of care.

The Moment You Move More

Americans’ sedentary lifestyles are increasing their risk for heart disease and stroke, but small steps—actual steps—lead to big gains and can help you become Healthy For Good. Whether it’s walking, running, biking, swimming, playing sports or doing yoga, the American Heart Association recommends adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity per week, or 75 minutes of vigorous activity. Kids should get at least 60 minutes of activity every day.

If you don’t want to sweat the numbers, just move more. Sneak more steps into your daily routine and find forms of exercise you enjoy.
