MISSION

For nearly 100 years, the American Heart Association has fought heart disease and stroke. We strive to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. With your support we can improve quality of life in central Arkansas and across the world. We can also ensure health environments, strengthen the economy, elevate care and change policy for all. Let’s commit to adding more years to life and more life to years.
