一群人手牵着手站着,直视着镜头

我们必须站在一起

作为奉献的志愿者, 提倡, 捐助者和工作人员, 我们站在一起,促进所有人的心血管健康.

我们的首席执行官、董事会主席和总裁向您问好

We’re advancing health equity for 所有.
”在一起, we built momentum toward our 2024 Impact Goal to advance cardiovascular health for 所有 by identifying and removing barriers to health care access and quality. Behind every life changed were dedicated volunteers, 捐助者和工作人员 — the heartbeat of our mission.” — Nancy Brown, Chief Executive Officer
“过去的一年 we boldly stood together with our global family of 提倡 and volunteers to champion change necessary to support patients, caregivers and communities around the world.——唐纳德·M. Lloyd-Jones, MD, ScM, FAHA, 总统

Advocating for Systems Change

我们知道,心血管疾病每年在全世界造成1700万人死亡. 这就是为什么我们要站出来对抗烟草公司的祸害, bringing lifesaving research innovations to market and working relentlessly to give everyone the chance to eat healthier.


我们必须一起战斗.

Standing Up to Tobacco Companies

Flavored tobacco products contribute to higher rates of heart disease, stroke and other illnesses.

A Stanford and AHA report documented tobacco companies have intention所有y marketed their deadly products to Black, Hispanic and young people. 结果s have been tragic所有y effective: 85% of Black and 48% of Hispanic people who smoke use menthol. 超过一半的青少年开始吸烟是从薄荷醇开始的. Flavored tobacco products contribute to higher rates of heart disease, stroke and other illnesses.

通过我们的“烟草终局”战略,我们决心结束这场灾难.

You’re the Cure buoyed the federal government’s proposed regulations to remove menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars from the market, 4人以上,100 online comments supporting the rules.


No Surprise Billing: Advocating for the No Surprises Act

“Thanks to the No Surprises Act, patients suffering from cardiac arrest, heart attack or stroke can now focus on their urgent medical needs and not have to worry about receiving a financi所有y devastating surprise bill,” American Heart Association CEO Nancy Brown said.

经过我们全国草根支持者网络四年的努力, the No Surprises Act has taken effect, 保护人们免受意外账单和金融灾难的影响.

Surprise medical billing occurs when a patient is billed directly for out-of-network medical care they thought their insurance would cover. These bills can amount to thousands of dollars.

“Thanks to the No Surprises Act, patients suffering from cardiac arrest, heart attack or stroke can now focus on their urgent medical needs and not have to worry about receiving a financi所有y devastating surprise bill,” American Heart Association CEO Nancy Brown said.


Empowering Healthier Communities

我们知道每个人都应该有同样的机会保持健康——但事实并非如此. We are improving health within a community with solutions from people within the community through our Social Impact Funds. 我们还倡导制定法律和政策,帮助人们获得医疗服务, avoid tobacco and eat healthier. 和 we’re working to expand Medicaid in 所有 州.


我们必须共同繁荣.

Investing in Communities

We stand beside communities nationwide as they rise to solve some of the most pressing issues of our time.
伯纳德·J. Tyson Impact Fund and the Social Impact Fund invest in local entrepreneurs committed to dissolving economic and social barriers to health equity. Our pioneering approach to these funds addresses access to health care, food insecurity and poverty. These investments are designed to sustain success; when business owners thrive, their communities get healthier.

Local farm addressing food insecurity

亚特兰大丰收公司在佐治亚州艾伦伍德创建了一个有机绿洲. The family-owned nursery and farm just south of the city provide healthy produce at fair prices to people who aren’t used to either.

Food insecurity is a major roadblock to health equity. Atlanta Harvest is a path through. 农民Raphaela israel和EliYahu israel说,Bernard J. Tyson Impact Fund has been a big boost to their efforts – which are making a huge difference for the people in the community.

Standing Up for Healthy Policies

One important way we stand with our communities is by advocating for laws and policies that help people access care, avoid tobacco and eat healthier. 过去的一年, powered by our network of 提倡, we set an AHA record by passing or defending 190 policies. 我们的成功包括:

改善全民保健

We know that when science-based guidelines are used and followed in health care settings, it’s proven to assure quality, 公平的护理. 我们为非个性化的患者数据登记增加了重要的见解, 这使医院能够更好地了解社会因素如何影响健康. We are also working to improve the health of residents in rural communities across the nation. 和 we updated Life’s Simple 7™ to Life’s Essential 8™ to include sleep as a crucial component to achieving ideal cardiovascular health.

We must survive together.

Working for Better Care in Rural Areas

People in rural communities face unique ch所有enges, 包括远离医疗保健和缺乏卫生专业人员. 结果? 心脏病发病率高得不成比例,早逝风险增加.

But we’re not standing for those disparities.

The New Number for Heart Health

Based on more than a decade of fresh science, we revamped the components identified as crucial to achieving ideal cardiovascular health and added one: sleep.

生活必不可少的标志

Life’s Simple 7™ has become Life’s Essential 8™. Based on more than a decade of fresh science, we revamped the components identified as crucial to achieving ideal cardiovascular health and added one: sleep. 这八个组成部分可分为行为因素和健康因素. 集体, 它们代表了通过降低患心脏病的风险来改善健康状况的途径, stroke and other major problems, such as cancer and dementia.

Life 's Essential还提供了更清晰的工具来衡量心血管健康状况. We’ve revised definitions and metrics, assessed it in the context of the life course and acknowledged the importance of social and economic factors.

Fueling Scientific Discoveries

We know that research saves and improves lives. 这就是为什么我们资助了战略聚焦研究网络, 将研究人员和机构聚集在一起,解决关键的卫生问题. We also invested in research teams studying COVID-19’s effects on heart and brain health. 我们资助了新的研究和支持,以减少卫生不平等.


我们必须共同努力.

研究 Networks Delve Into Inequities

科学是我们照亮更长寿、更沙巴足球体育平台未来的方式. 和 Strategic所有y Focused 研究 Networks are an important way to accomplish this critical goal. So far we’ve invested more than $250 million to establish 14 Strategic所有y Focused 研究 Networks. 最新的是:

The Science of 多样性 in Clinical Trials

The SFRN on the Science of 多样性 in Clinical Trials pursues how to ensure that people of different races and ethnicities are fully included in medical research.

Health Equity 研究 Networks

健康公平研究网络是我们研究不公平现象的另一个重要途径. The Health Equity 研究 Network on Disparities in Maternal-Infant Health Outcomes examines the reasons Black and Indigenous women and women living in rural areas face disproportionate maternal complications.

We’ve put $20 million toward understanding how social and economic factors make some women more likely to experience pregnancy complications.
