Our Future is About Improving Yours

美国心脏协会致力于促进每个人的健康和希望, everywhere, 创造一个远离心脏病和中风的美好明天. 和我们一起庆祝幸存者和照顾者,向我们失去的人致敬.
当美国心脏协会于1924年6月10日成立时,心脏病被认为是死刑. 他们被告知,对许多人来说,最好的选择是卧床休息. There was no treatment, no hope. But the AHA’s founders didn’t believe that. 他们觉得只要我们了解心脏病,治疗方法就会随之而来. And were they ever right. Fast-forward to today and there are not only treatments, 但是已经被证实的降低心脏病和中风风险的方法. 通过科学研究和数百万志愿者和支持者的力量, 我们对导致这些疾病的许多因素有了更深入的了解:从高血压等传统医学问题到社会问题, structural racism and discrimination.

在接下来的100年里,我们将继续致力于为每个人创造一个健康和希望的未来,我们不会放松, everywhere.
