The American Heart Association is working to create a world of longer, healthier lives. That starts in the Pittsburgh region.
A Culture of Health
Every year in the Pittsburgh region, approximately 867 people die from a heart attack or stroke.
Greater Pittsburgh Heart Walk
The Greater Pittsburgh Heart Walk Digital Experience is a fun and meaningful way to celebrate heart and stroke survivors, raise lifesaving funds and encourage physical activity.
On Saturday, November 14, Heart Walk participants and teams will not physically meet but are invited to get moving at home or around the neighborhood starting at 9 a.m. Where are you heart walking? Share your photos and videos using #PghHeartWalk.
Your Voice Matters
We will only beat heart disease and stroke if we work together. We advocate for policies that prevent cardiovascular diseases, improve the quality of and access to care, increase research funding and expand rehabilitation services.
Go Red for Women
The American Heart Association’s signature women’s initiative, Go Red for Women, is a comprehensive platform designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally.
AHA Pittsburgh Young Professionals
Our mission is to educate, to celebrate, to get physical, to serve and to inspire through fun and fitness!
Our young adult volunteers want to make a difference by increasing awareness and education of cardiovascular diseases and stroke while having fun. They were inspired to get involved either because their lives had been directly or indirectly affect by heart diseases and stroke, or because they just wanted to be a part of this active community.
