You’re the Cure

Every day, Americans’ lives are touched by heart disease and stroke. We all have the power to make a difference by speaking out for policies that help build healthier communities and healthier lives.

For more than 30 years, You’re the Cure – the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s grassroots network – has been doing just that. Each day, we work together to advocate for heart-healthy and stroke-smart communities through legislative and regulatory policies in our cities, states and across the country, and we hope you’ll join us!
