Making An Impact Together

As a member of the community, you have an important role to play in helping to improve the long-term health of Central Virginia.

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.

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, your actions can help by giving Hands-Only CPR when you see a teen or adult collapse. 

Let's Talk Numbers
