Yes, what great events. The New Mexico Stroke Forum and GWTG Stroke Conference were huge successes! We signed up over 100 new advocates in just two days. Let's keep the momentum. Way to go New Mexico Team~ Jen

Thank the American Heart Association if…


  • Your family member had a successful heart bypass,

  • You had open heart surgery and slept through the whole thing,

  • Your neighbor was able to return to work after having a stroke.

The grant we fund today could save a life tomorrow.


Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

GAPS IN THE SYSTEMS OF CARE COST LIVES.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of Americans have a type of heart attack known as STEMI, in which blood flow is completely blocked to a portion of the heart. Unless the blockage is eliminated quickly, the patient’s health and life are at serious risk. Currently, around two-thirds of STEMI patients fail to receive the best available treatments to restore blood flow.


The American Heart Association created Mission: Lifeline as a response to missed opportunities caused by gaps in the system of care.

Press Conference will discuss barriers:
*Activation of 911 “Why we don’t call for help”
*Access and quality of care
*Fragmented systems of care and building community partnerships
*Funding, training and guidelines
*Mock STEMI Heart Attack EMS call

The Challenge of Saving Heart Attack Victims & Bridging the Gaps of Care
