The American Heart Association is the largest not-for-profit funding source for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease research next to the federal government, resulting in 14 Nobel Prize winners and several important medical breakthroughs including techniques and standards for CPR, the first artificial heart valve, implantable pacemakers, cholesterol inhibitors, microsurgery and drug-coated stents.

The American Heart Association helps save lives through research that leads to medical breakthroughs; education that leads to individual prevention; and advocating for change in systems and policies that together help loved ones, families and communities live happier, healthier and longer lives.
