American Heart Association: Decreasing Heart Disease Together
It is the mission of the American Heart Association (www.heart.org/HEARTORG) to decrease cardiovascular disease, the nation’s No. 1 killer, for all Americans.
How are the national organization and its local chapters tackling this? One way is through partnerships with local hospitals participating in Get With the Guidelines® quality programs. Use of these programs shows the commitment to quality and improving outcomes for patients.
