CPR Trainings

Emergencies leave us feeling helpless, but they don’t have to. Take two minutes to learn Hands-Only CPR™(link opens in new window)(link opens in new window) now. 70 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes. When a person has a cardiac arrest, immediate CPR can double or triple their chance of survival. Prepare to save a life, find a CPR course near you today.

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. 

Lend Your Voice For A Healthier Virginia 

We support and advocate for local, state, and federal public policies that will improve health outcomes and prevent cardiovascular diseases. This year we are advocating for policies that would: increase access to healthy affordable foods in communities, ensure safe walking and biking environments communities, and ensure dispatchers are trained in telephone CPR because early access to 9-1-1 and early CPR are the two important links in the chain of survival for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
