Cor Vitae Society members are woven into every aspect of our work. Their passion for the American Heart Association mission drives local change and national impact. They give through events such as Heart Ball, Heart Walk and Go Red For Women. Their efforts also support cutting-edge research, community initiatives and proven advocacy, education and outreach efforts.
In partnership with our society members, the American Heart Association is committed to:
- Breakthroughs in science and technology
- Changes in systems and policy
- Engaging with individuals and organizations to transform communities
We are deeply grateful to each of our Cor Vitae Society members and their impact.
Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. 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. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
