A Culture of Health

The American Heart Association is a science-based organization and during this challenging time. We want you to know we continue our work in fighting heart diseases and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of all Americans. We are doing so with everyone’s health and safety in mind as we carry out our mission of being a relentless force for longer, healthier lives.

Show you Have Tulsa at Heart

As a member of the community, you have an important role to play in helping to improve the long-term health of our city.

Give generously to help make heart health a priority, to increase funding for research on heart disease and women, and to close disparities in treatment.

Mental Health

Feelings of stress, anxiety, uneasiness and lack of sleep can make it difficult to function normally. Mental health and physical health are closely linked, so finding ways to combat and manage stress in the (virtual) workplace and exercise while working remotely. 

Move More

With school and gym closings, our exercise routines are no longer routine. Use this time as an opportunity to switch up our workout regimen, which can help to boost our immune system, help relieve mental stress and improve overall health.

Eat Healthy

We know that many of you may be cooking more at home right now. While some may find the thought of cooking stressful, making healthy meals is a great way to protect your heart. The American Heart Association has resources to fit all skillsets starting with How To Cook Healthier at Home. For those wishing to improve their abilities, there’s an entire section dedicated to culinary techniques. Here are a few easy recipes that use pantry staples.

Advocate for Medicaid Expansion

Oklahomans with risk factors for heart disease and stroke who lack health insurance or are underinsured are more likely to die early and have poorer blood pressure control than their insured counterparts. Uninsured stroke patients suffer from greater neurological impairments, longer hospital stays and a higher risk of death than similar patients covered by health insurance. Join us in making sure Oklahomans have access to healthcare no matter where they live by advocating for Medicaid Expansion.
