American Heart Association (AHA)
In the early 1900s, a few like-minded physicians and social workers in the United States of America questioned the then-common notion of people with heart diseases being fated with complete bed rest or untimely death. Their quest incited the formation of the American Heart Association (AHA) as a scientific society promoting relevant research on 10 June 1924. Following this, the committee restructured itself to a voluntary health organization.
Spanning nearly a century of research and lifesaving, AHA has grown internationally to incorporate over 33 million supporters. Having been associated with them since 2005, Lifesupporters Institute of Health Sciences strives to facilitate AHA’s vision of ‘A world where nobody dies from cardiac arrest.
