Our Story

It is imperative that the AHA continues to build upon and use our resources to accelerate community solutions. Individuals and low socio-economic status communities, cannot improve their health without basic access to healthy food and safe water, exceptional education and job skills training, safe streets, a robust economy and access to healthcare.

The Mayo Clinic states that 40 percent of health can be attributed to socioeconomic factors, 30 percent to healthy behaviors, 20 percent to medical care and 10 percent to the environment. In order to impact health outcomes, the AHA must include a focus on social determinants, utilizing an equity lens in all that we do.

Mission: The Office of Health Equity, through EmPOWERED To Serve will amplify community-centered solutions that have measurable impact on eliminating health disparities through improvement of social determinants of health.

HELLO VIEWERS, I AM WRITING THIS FROM SAN JOSE CALIFORNIA, I am happy writing this article here, I am here to narrate on blogs/pages about the WONDERFUL AND MOST SAFE CURE FOR BRAIN STROKE AND HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS. I was suffering from a deadly sickness called Brain Stroke for 4 years, I has leg paralysis & my friend suffering from Herpes. I searched online to know and inquire about cure for Brain Stroke and HERPES when I saw many testimonies online on how DR. THEO cured so many persons from Brain Stroke, Herpes, HIV, Stretch marks, Obesity, Bad Breath, Black Spots, Fibroid, Cancer, Retinitis, Hepatitis, Lupus, Ultra, Arthritis, HPV, including spell to cure sicknesses and love spell casters of any kind, etc so I decided to contact the great herbalist because I know that nature has the power to heal every sicknesses, EVEN WHEN MEDICALS DOCTORS ARE FINDING IT DIFFICULT. I contacted him to know how he can help me and my friend, he told us never to worry that he will help us with the natural herbal medicines from roots and plants! He sent us the herbal medicine through FedEx which we received in 3 days, We used the medicine, cream & soap as he instructed us (MORNING and EVENING) and I and my friend are completely cured! it’s really like a dream but I’m happy ASAP!

Good morning Everyone, I was recently looking around on social media & saw lots of people doing online workouts but everything I saw was aimed at 'able bodied active people.' I am myself a Stroke Survivor & a fitness instructor, I set out to change this! This week I created a youtube so that people can take part in seated exercise classes from home all for free! :) it has had a great response with many saying it gives them something to do with their day & makes them feel better! :D I have included many different levels: Level 1 - seated exercise for beginners - upper body Level 2 - seated exercise Leg workout Level 3 - seated exercise - full body workout Level 4 - seated exercise - standing & seated exercise Level 5 - cardio exercise. I hope this can make a big difference to everyone who is currently stuck at home in these times :) please give it a go & let me know your thoughts

Hello everyone, my name is Karina and today I want to share this motivational video. You can do it.
Hi, I hope you don't mind this post. Tommy Gordon Quick had a stroke aged just 12 years. He has just started his countdown to riding a massive 9000km to the 4 most distant points of Australia in August next year. He is doing this to raise awareness for young (and old) stroke fighters while. championing increased social inclusion. Your encouragement and support will be invaluable to helping him achieve this epic challenge. Please like and share his page. Sincere thanks, on behalf of Tommy and the 4 Points team https://www.facebook.com/4PointsAustralia
Hola presente mi propuesta, esta directamente relacionanda con el corazon, es una solucion innovadora, pero me rechazaron y no se porque, este proyecto salvara vidas : [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auSPKF-v9Ls&t=1s](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auSPKF-v9Ls&t=1s&fbclid=IwAR0bXEVm_qMa1eN77Ex0ffLByZfYAzr6xiNDN2kpIm45rFUDgGIHNlRrIhI)
I own a h**p CBD website Ultimate CBD Warehouse, and I can't advertise on Facebook because Facebook has decided H**p CBD is something terrible and they need to protect people. But interestingly on CBS This Morning News, Mark Zuckerburg states people can make their own decisions on what is true or not in political ads and ALLOWS FAKE INFORMATION to be boosted for money. But I can't post a research document from the National Institute of Health about H**p CBD benefits because Facebook thinks it promotes drug use and is harmful to society. My question is, why are people smart enough to determine truth and lies in politics, but not smart enough to read documented scientific research to decide what they use in their life. I have previously submitted all documents to validate who I am to run political ads, but since Facebook says I violated the policy, I can't advertise anymore. I ran the same ads I received in my news feed from other CBD companies, and I get denied, yet I continue to receive the same CBD ads from other companies. When I appeal to Facebook, they say too bad and won't even allow an appeal. It seems like censorship; large companies can post and run ads but not the little business owner. So Thank you, FACEBOOK, for CENSORING MY LIFE!
How CBD Promotes A Healthy Heart Recently scientists have started conducting extensive studies in regards to CBD (Cannabidiol) and its effects on our cardiovascular system. Current research is showing CBD could provide future therapy for cardiovascular diseases, due to its ability to lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation. Read more of the research at:
