Social media are transforming the world we live in, and thanks to you, they are also helping the American Heart Association reach more people than ever with our messaging about cardiovascular diseases and stroke. By sharing our resources via your favorite social media, you’re helping us raise awareness of cardiovascular risk while bringing together millions of people with the common goal of wiping out our nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 causes of death.

Starting today, when you use this blog you’ll find a wealth of American Heart Association content that’s easy to share through social media including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+ and Pinterest. You’ll find news articles, announcements, photos, links, tweets and more from our staff and volunteers.

I hope you’ll visit every day. And remember, each time you share something from this site, you’re helping us achieve our mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Thanks for all you’ve done on our behalf and for caring about the work we do.
