The health care needs of the Houston community are vast. From staggering, uncontrolled blood pressure rates to our less-than-optimal bystander CPR rates, it is clear we still have a lot of work to do. The Greater Houston American Heart Association (AHA) seeks to partner with a group of passionate, physician leaders to form a local council that will work to advance the mission of the AHA, to create a world of longer, healthier lives.
Without our volunteers, the work we do would not be possible. With your help, we can form a united front with common goals that are specific to our community. Physicians around the world utilize the resources provided through the American Heart Association to gain knowledge, receive research funding, advocate for health and safety guidelines, and push forward toward a healthier tomorrow.
Together, our shared values of trust in science, health care quality, and community impact will lead us to save more lives, improve patient outcomes, and ultimately, create a healthier Houston.
