The American Heart Association is the largest voluntary health organization working to prevent, treat and defeat heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. These diseases, the nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers, claim more than 813,804 American lives a year. The AHA awards money to UAB each year to bolster research efforts.
