About American Heart Association
Nearly 2,200 Americans die of cardiovascular diseases each day — one person every 39 seconds. Cardiovascular diseases claim more lives each year than cancer, chronic lower respiratory diseases and accidents combined. On average, every 40 seconds someone in the United States has a stroke. Research is a major weapon in our fight against the No. 1 and No. 4 killers in our nation - heart disease and stroke.

The American Heart Association works every minute of every day to advance groundbreaking medical research, spread lifesaving knowledge and reach out to people of all ages about cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Since 1949, the American Heart Association has spent more than $3.3 billion on research to increase our knowledge about cardiovascular diseases and stroke. From the development of CPR to open heart surgery, we have been a part of many important research milestones. They have funded seven Nobel Prize winners, helped link dietary fat with cholesterol, funded the creation of the first pacemaker and supported early research for the arterial stent. They are second only to the federal government in funding cardiovascular and stroke research; however, each year we need more resources to attract and encourage promising scientists to careers in cardiovascular and stroke programs, fund high-quality research projects and originate new programs to meet the needs of the research community.

Last year alone, the Western States Affiliate funded millions in research to fight heart disease and stroke. We’re creating healthier communities to ensure stronger, longer lives for you and your loved ones.
