We have a few ways you can help us spread our mission in the next few weeks.
- October 29th is World Stroke Day. Help us spread the word about how to Spot a Stroke FAST by promoting our FREE Mobile App to the people you know.
- Our deadline for Fit-Friendly Workplace applications is coming up on Nov. 1. You can help by encouraging any workplace with 25 or more employees to apply or renew their applications at heart.org/fitfriendly.
- The American Heart Association’s National Eating Healthy Day is Wednesday, Nov. 6. Families, schools and communities throughout the United States will make a pledge and come together to take steps toward living a healthier life. Please encourage your companies, schools and organizations to register for free tools and materials at heart.org/nationaleatinghealthyday.
Our 86th AHA Scientific Sessions will kick off in Dallas, TX Nov. 16-20 and more than 20,000 participants from 105 countries are expected. In this short video, Triangle, NC Board Chair Vern Davenport shares his impressions of this key meeting and the impact it makes on advancing our mission around the world.
In December I’ll update you on the Nov. 20 opening of our Simple Cooking with Heart Teaching Kitchen in Baltimore.
There are lots of exciting things happening in the months ahead and I thank you for helping to make them possible.
