Welcome to the NYC Young Professionals Action Center! This is your place to learn about the federal, state, and local health policies we’re fighting for and learn how you can help.

Supporting the American Heart Association (AHA) can look like a lot of different things. Through advocacy, the AHA works to support policies which advance our mission to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For 40 years, we have been advocating for strong public health policies like clean indoor air, reducing sugar sweetened beverage consumption, expanding healthcare access, and ensuring all High School students are trained in CPR before graduation, to just name a few.

As a Young Professional with the AHA, your voice is of great importance to our advocacy efforts. You provide a valuable perspective for our elected officials on issues that impact our communities, and your leadership helps empower other voices to join our advocacy efforts.
