We’re improving the quality of care for heart and stroke patients by:

  • Improving emergency care for heart attack victims through our Mission: Lifeline community-based initiative

We’re reaching at-risk populations through cause initiatives and online tools:

Nationwide, we invest over $132 million a year ($3.2 billion since 1949) in heart and stroke research that has led to recent breakthroughs such as clot-busting drugs and drug-eluting stents.
