Don't Die of Doubt

As COVID-19 cases continues, ER visits are down compared to the same period last year. Yet, heart attacks and strokes haven’t stopped for COVID-19. To combat this alarming trend, the American Heart Association launched a new public awareness campaign, supported locally by OHSU, called, “Don’t Die of Doubt,” that urges people to call 9-1-1 and seek emergency medical care at the hospital if experiencing symptoms of a heart attack or a stroke

Supporting those with Heart Failure

Although it can be difficult living with a chronic condition like heart failure, people can continue to enjoy full lives as they address their symptoms. We are working with OHSU to provide heart failure resources – such as self-monitoring tools, ways to recognize the signs, tips on lifestyle changes, and questions to ask providers – all in an effort to help people manage the condition.

Changing the Culture of an Industry Through Hard Hats with Heart

Just like any professional athlete, industrial workers’ bodies are their most valuable asset. We are working with the local construction industry to help identify and manage key health risk factors, and support the industry with tools and resources to improve health of its professional trade workers.

Promoting Healthy Hearts From the Start

A healthy diet supports a healthy heart. We’re working to increase access to healthy foods and beverages to increase the health of our community. AHA is partnering with local businesses to ensure employees have healthy food options at the office. Working side-by-side with organizations in our community, the AHA is addressing food insecurity specifically in Clackamas County.
