Mission Statement
The American Heart Association’s mission is “building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.” The Stroke Council, one of 16 scientific councils within the American Heart Association, is uniquely dedicated to advancing the science of stroke prevention, treatment and recovery through research and education. The Stroke Council develops scientifically based publications, meetings, professional education, and training programs and supports the American Stroke Association’s work in translating stroke-related science into effective initiatives and products for the public, healthcare professionals, healthcare facilities and policy makers.
Include the American Heart Association in your will or estate plan and leave a legacy that will fund research and education, benefiting others long after you’re gone. To learn more, visit heart.org/plannedgiving or call (888) 227-5242.
