Congrats to the American Heart Association for Saving 1.7 Million Lives!!!
By Adam Pick on November 22, 2017
There is one statistic about heart disease that makes me very uncomfortable and very sad. Here it is… Heart disease is responsible for 1 out of 3 deaths among women. Imagine that? Shocking, right?
For that reason… In 1998, the American Heart Association (AHA) set a wonderful, 10-year goal to reduce the number of deaths from heart disease and stroke by 25 percent. Now, 10 years later, that goal has been exceeded. Watch this video to learn how the AHA’s patient education efforts have saved the lives 1.7 million people.
Many thanks to the AHA for its extraordinary campaign to educate and empower patients with heart disease. And specifically, many thanks to all the volunteers, the corporate sponsors, and the donors who have come together to fight heart disease.
Keep on tickin’ AHA!
