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 San Antonio 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.

Be a changemaker.

The Woman of Impact, Teen of Impact, and Leaders for Life movements are dedicated to making a lasting impact on the health of our community. Each year a select group of individuals are nominated to be a part of this initiative because of their passion and drive to make a difference. All nominees will bring together their own network to form an impact team, set a goal, raise funds, and have a direct impact on our community.

At the culmination of this 8-9 week campaign, this special group will be celebrated for the overall impact they have on our mission and community. In addition, the top individuals in each category will be recognized at the Heart of San Antonio event in late Spring 2022.
