Founded in 1924, the American Heart Association (AHA) is a national voluntary health agency whose mission is to reduce disability and death from cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Since the AHA became a voluntary health organization in 1948, we have spent more that $2.7 billion dollars for projects that explore the prevention, detection and treatment of heart disease and stroke. The AHA’s research commitment over the past half century has helped lead to developments such as pacemakers, open-heart surgery, heart transplantation, clot-busting drugs and defibrillators that can stop potential fatal heart rhythm problems. The AHA’s goal is to provide credible heart disease and stroke information for effective prevention and treatment.
