Building a Culture of Health in Eastern Washington


The average person born in the lower South Hill lives just 66 years. Head just a few miles south on Grand Avenue and someone born on the upper South Hill lives 18 years more. Why? Access to healthy foods, access to healthcare and safe places to exercise all can play a role. Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. If we want to end heart disease and stroke, we need to address health disparities, focus on prevention and healthy lifestyles, ensure patients are treated with the latest scientific findings and build a community where everyone can achieve the best possible health.

Jennifer Volland

Jennifer Volland woke up one morning feeling a little off. Suspecting the flu, she almost ignored it, but

something told her things we not ok. Jennifer went to the hospital where she learned she had suffered a heart attack. Today, Jennifer encourages others to know the warning signs for a heart attack, especially because they can be a little different for women, and to call 911 immediately if you suspect you could be having a heart attack.

Washington Research Saves Lives

Currently in Washington state, the American Heart Association is funding 24 research projects totaling $5.8 million in research grants. Science funded by the AHA has been instrumental in creating advances such as the artificial heart valve, cholesterol-lowering drugs, stents and the mechanical heart pump which helps extend the life of patients. But each year grants go unfunded and the next big ideas wait to be investigated. With your support, we can fund innovation and save and improve lives.

Better U

Nearly half of adults with high blood pressure are women and many don’t know their blood pressure numbers are high. Better U™ is a program developed by the American Heart Association, and supported locally by Providence Spokane Heart Institute, to support and encourage women in the Inland Northwest who want to improve heart and brain health through blood pressure management.  The seven-week program is offered for free to participants.

e-cigarettes versus cigarettes

E-cigarettes can be a gateway to other tobacco use.

Big Tobacco is targeting our kids with flavored e-cigarettes with the goal of creating a new generation of tobacco users. This is not ok. We are working in collaboration with public health organizations and lawmakers to regulate these products to ensure they stay out of the hands of our kids.
