40 Years of Partnership

On Feb. 4, we were very excited to celebrate 40 years of partnership with Virginia Commonwealth University Medical center. The MAA Board of Directors presented a check for $2.4 million to VCU President Dr. Michael Rao, representing the 12 current research projects being funded by AHA.  Members of the MAA Board of Directors, local Division Board Officers and staff were treated to a research tour of their labs in the new Pauley Heart Center the following day, led by several AHA-funded researchers.  It was inspiring to hear how our grants have launched discoveries, steered careers, and sustained whole research teams as they seek to end the devastating impact of heart disease and stroke around the world.
