American Heart Association


To improve the lives of all Americans, they provide public health education in a variety of ways.

They are the nation’s leader in CPR education training. They help people understand the importance of healthy lifestyle choices. They provide science-based treatment guidelines to healthcare professionals to help ensure the best treatment for every patient, every time. They educate lawmakers, policy makers and the public as we advocate for changes to protect and improve the health of our communities.

Their volunteer experts select scientific research most worthy of funding – with great results. They have funded more than $3.5 billion in research since 1949, more than any organization outside the federal government. They have funded 13 Nobel Prize winners and lifesaving advancements such as the first artificial heart valve, cholesterol-inhibiting drugs, heart transplant capabilities, and CPR techniques and guidelines.
