Founded in 1924, the American Heart Association has grown into the nation's oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. Heart disease is the No.1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks globally. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Did you know that 80% of cardiovascular and stroke-related deaths are preventable? It is critical that we focus on prevention and healthy living for younger generations to come. We formed Young at Heart to raise awareness of heart disease and educate Houston young professionals on the importance of heart health.
