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.

Lend Your Voice For A Healthier Virginia 

We will only beat heart diseases and stroke if we work together. 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: improve healthcare access for nearly 400,000 Virginians, increase access to healthy food options, and provide funding for communities to create safe walking and biking environments.

Healthy For Good

You don’t need a guilt trip. We know you know. You want to be Healthy For Good. And we’re here to help inspire you to create lasting change in your health and your life, one small step at a time. The approach is simple: Eat smart. Add color. Move more. Be well.
