What We Do

From humble beginnings, the AHA has grown into the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. A shared focus on cardiovascular health unites our more than 33 million volunteers and supporters as well as our more than 3,400 employees.

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. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Our size and scope let us have real impact. We have invested more than $4.5 billion in research, more than any U.S. nonprofit organization.

Interesting Info

We trained more than more than 92,000 Nebraska residents over the past year (19 million nationwide)
In the past 5 years the American Heart Association has funded $4,103,157 of new and continuing research here locally.
In the next decade, by 2030, the AHA will strive to equitably increase healthy life expectancy from 66 to at least 68 years of age in the United States.
