On February 22, please celebrate with us and take action to improve awareness of the risks and symptoms of heart valve disease, increase detection and treatment, and ultimately save lives.

Join us for an educational lunch briefing to learn about: the latest in heart valve disease research from the director of the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, leading treatments from the former president of The Society for Thoracic Surgeons, and inspiring stories from two AHA Heart Valve Ambassadors. The president and CEO of the Alliance for Aging Research will share awareness day calls-to-action for individuals, policymakers, and district offices.
