A Culture Of Health
Our mission is to create a world free of heart disease and stroke - a world where everyone can achieve the best possible health - and it starts right here in Hilton Head Island. That's why we must come together to solve complex issues that affect this generation and generations to come.
Your Voice Matters
We will only beat heart diseases and stroke if we work together. In South Carolina, we support and advocate for public policies that will prevent cardiovascular diseases. This year we are advocating for policies that focus on improving quality systems of care, decreasing tobacco use, and increasing access to healthy food options.
Hands-Only CPR Can Save Lives
Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR. As a bystander, don't be afraid. Your actions can only help by giving Hands-Only CPR! When you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, call 911 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of any tune that is 100 to 120 beats per minute. Immediate CPR can double or even triple a person's chance of survival.
Volunteer With Heart
The American Heart Association depends on the time and talent of volunteers to help us create a healthier world, free of heart disease and stroke. Whatever your capabilities, interests or schedule may be, we can find a volunteer opportunity that's right for you.
Let's Talk Numbers
The best way to know if you have high blood pressure is to measure your blood pressure. Our Check. Change. Control. program uses self-monitoring and tracking of blood pressure readings at home to help you achieve and maintain a healthy heart.
