Welcome to the American Heart Association’s Impact Central. 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. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives.
Our Mission: To be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.
