So much of what makes us healthy has to do with where we live, learn, work, and play. If you would like to join AHA in learning about and addressing factors that affect health outside of the doctor’s office, help us explore issues like housing, transportation, poverty, and more so we can find the small part AHA and all of our organizations can play in addressing them.
